What does a first session with you look like?

I've worked with people who have trauma, phobias, and eating disorders. I'm very evidenced-based. I am certified in DBT, clinical trauma, and DBT for eating disorders. I like solutions-oriented approaches. My theoretical orientation includes specialization in Exposure Response Prevention (ERP) and Habit Reversal Training (HRT) for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Trichotillomania, Excoriation Disorder, and Hoarding. Other therapeutic skills include Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Written Exposure Therapy (WET), Positive Psychology and Solutions Focused Therapy (SFT). I am a Certified Level One Solutions Focused Therapist and completed the Level One Gottman Method for Couples Counseling.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

As a therapist, I like to learn a lot about what's happening in your life now. How does your OCD manifest in daily life? What are you doing now that isn't working for you? I also like to get background stories to determine perhaps why some of these anxieties exist. I like to look at biopsychosocial history—like birth order or your school experience—which is often relevant.
