What does a first session with you look like?

When we work together, my goal is to help you figure out how to improve all areas of your life, but of course, we will address the goals that you want to work on. I often recommend books, podcasts, worksheets or other homework between sessions. This helps keep you moving toward your goals between sessions. Reviews from clients indicate that I am caring, skilled, authentic, resourceful and patient I will work hard to make sure you are well-informed about the therapeutic process, and that you feel comfortable but also challenged.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I will support, listen and challenge you using a Strengths-Based approach with Cognitive Behavior Theory, Positive Psychology with the integration of other approaches. I often employ EMDR, Polyvagal and other coping strategies in therapy sessions.
