What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session will be an opportunity for both of us to gain information. Your questions are always welcome in any/all sessions, but this first session is a time to speak to any thoughts you have regarding therapy, or you may have some concerns. I would also like to use this time to ask you about how things are going currently, and therapy is more beneficial with some history of things that you have tried in the past. Please plan on 60 minutes of this first session. Follow up sessions will be approximately 45 minutes. Each of these sessions will allow you to learn new skills and practice those skills. You will gain experience working toward relief of symptoms and taking control of increasing your satisfaction with your life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a variety of treatment modalities that are based on clients' current needs and preferences. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy- This approach assists people to increase their understanding that in part, psychological problems are based on unhealthy ways of thinking. People learn ways to recognize these thoughts which can cause, and at minimum contribute to anxiety and depression. New skills are applied that have been proven to elicit a reduction in symptoms. Cognitive Processing Therapy- This approach helps clients become aware of problematic thought patterns, while also providing treatment for past traumas. Mindfulness- Mindfulness techniques teach clients to be present in the moment, decompress, and relax. It can be helpful for anxiety and avoidance of panic.
