What does a first session with you look like?

My goal is for you to leave each session feeling a little more empowered and hopeful each time we meet. Here are a few ways we can accomplish that: * I'll provide a safe, comforting, and nonjudgmental space for you to heal and grow * We'll fully process, explore, and dissect how you've been impacted by burnout * You'll learn and have ready access to tools and strategies to combat burnout * I'll help you find ways to set boundaries so that you can better meet your needs * I'll guide you in finding your meaning of burnout trauma * We'll regularly check in with your wants, needs, and goals to make sure you're getting what you need during our time together

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a combination of structured and expressive therapies molded to fit perfectly with your wants, needs, and goals. * Structured therapies: I use mindset therapies, solution-focused therapies, and trauma-focused therapies to find and explore your strengths and self-perceptions. I'll then teach you how to use what we find to explore solutions to your concerns or barriers * Expressive therapies: I use narrative writing, journaling, and roleplaying as ways to express all your concerns and bottled-up emotions and things you've been hiding from the world
