What does a first session with you look like?

My client's leave my sessions feeling better than when they came in, and with tools to try during the week to help manage their symptoms. Our first session is where I get to know you. We talk about what brings you into therapy, how issues affect your daily life, relationships and work. My goal is the obtain the best understanding of what it is like for you to live in your world, so that together we can find solutions that you can realistically integrate into your daily routine. Everyone needs support along their life journey, and I believe that we all have within us what is needed to become the person we want to be, and create the life we want. My approach is warm but direct. I want you to feel supported, and heard and meet you where you are at on your journey.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use evidenced based practices to target client centered goals such as CBT, ACT, DBT, Trauma Informed Care etc. The evidenced based practice I use will coincide with what challenge you're working toward improvement. The process feels fluid, like a conversation with a good friend who just happens to be trained in clinical mental health and has a professional passion for the healing and wellness of others.
