What does a first session with you look like?

The road to change is not easy process and can be difficult, sometimes painful. But you don’t come to therapy to talk about how good things are going. You come to therapy to discuss the difficulties in your life and how to get better because obviously your way hasn’t been working. Trust the process. As we form a trusted, empathic, supportive, bond, we explore your feelings and unconscious, past and your present. Then we begin to understand the roots of your current problems and how to cope differently. We can't help you solve your issues if you don’t understand why you have them in first place. Please contact me when you’re ready.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a psychodynamic process oriented psychotherapist. My work is generally not a short term process. The process itself, of self awareness, is the catalyst for change and we get to that awareness by simply talking about your life. I often utilize the technique of free association to navigate your thoughts and feelings and we see where it leads: your own guide to self exploration during our session. The treatment is based on core principles: it’s client centered meaning we focus on your issues, where you’re at today, and we focus on the process, what it’s like to engage in the treatment with the psychotherapist. I am not a brief solutions-based therapist or cognitive behavioral therapist and have no idea what motivational interviewing or mindfulness actually is. LOL
