What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session together will be utilied to build rappart to ensure a good fit for the client. Clients should expect a therapeutic environment that is compassionate, empathetic, and safe. My role is to offer you insights into your experiences, advice on how to handle issues, and evidence-based treatment for mental health conditions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that usually focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, and behavior. This type of therapy often works by identifying and correcting the negative thoughts that influence certain emotions, so they do not trigger undesirable or harmful behaviors toward the self or others. Dialectical behavioral therapy, or (DBT), focuses on the way that emotions can be connected to thoughts and behavior rather than the way thoughts can influence emotions. This type of therapy can also incorporate the concepts of acceptance and mindfulness to help clients let go of things they cannot control, accept things that are unpleasant or upsetting, and learn how to live peacefully with themselves and their environment.
