What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a person centered approach. Your experience is unique, and I will tailor interventions to best suit your needs. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to work or how we view ourselves, which shapes how we perceive experiences, and how we feel about ourselves.

What does a first session with you look like?

We will begin the first sessions getting to know each other, and building rapport. We will work on a plan of action to help process complex emotions, and learn coping skills to better manage stressors on be on the road to healing. I use evidenced based techniques in order to help you get through difficult times and experiences and learn to overcome them.
