What does a first session with you look like?

The first session, as with all Thriveworks therapists, will involve talking through your needs and goals for therapy — whether those involve managing depression, anxiety, relationship problems, or another mental health challenge. This will enable you to receive the very best care, as a personalized treatment plan will then be developed for subsequent sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I offer a variety of counseling approaches including Addiction, Anger, Anxiety, Behavioral Issues, Bipolar Disorder, Coping Skills, Depression, Life Transition, OCD / Obsessive-Compulsive, Self Esteem, Self Harm, Stress, Trauma / PTSD and Women’s Issues.

What are your biggest strengths as a therapist?

I am here to help remove the taboo around talking openly about mental health.
