What does a first session with you look like?

I would expect that each client should walk away from a session feeling better than they walked in. Even during the busiest times when it's difficult to carve out an hour for anything, you should leave the session feeling glad that you kept your appointment. I will help you set goals and then point out and celebrate every success. Therapy will be a safe space for you to vent and feel heard and validated. If we are also able to have a few laughs in the time we have, I would not be surprised.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I try to find creative solutions to therapy based on your needs, which might include mindfulness activities based on your interests, therapeutic game play, creating concrete goals and plans, and/or following your lead to find the best evidence-based practice that will work for you.
