What does a first session with you look like?

Our work together is geared to help you improve yourself. Our initial session will focus on your situation and assess your current emotional health. We must both understand what brings you to therapy, then develop strategies for improvement. This begins with sharing initial information to determine how to help you best achieve your goals. Specific tools based on your identified needs will be offered during sessions. Examples of these tools may include exercises that will change your thought processes and provide effective coping mechanisms or challenges to allow you to better engage with others. Our collaboration will result in you having stronger life, relationship, and communication skills.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Treatment methods include: • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) • Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT) • Narrative Therapy (NT) In CBT, negative thought processes are challenged to make room for positive thoughts and behaviors. With CBT, structured exercises are provided to identify new ways of thinking about yourself and situations. Through SFT, you learn to identify solutions to problems instead of focusing on their cause. You are encouraged to recognize your strengths and use that recognition to achieve the desired life outcome. NT asserts that people know themselves best. Clients are encouraged to share their stories and consider the impact their experiences had on them. Through this sharing, clients more easily can process emotions and recognize new ways to live.
