What does a first session with you look like?

I believe in collaboration with my clients, after all, you are the expert on your life. I aim to partner with you when providing an individually personalized approach to healing, growth, and the alleviation of hurts, hangups, and heartbreak. Together we will engage in talking, processing, and storytelling to identify how life has hurt you as well as how you want to heal from that hurt. Our therapy is a safe space to rediscover all of you and embrace yourself fully. It is an opportunity to explore how you feel, heal from traumas, and define who you want to be as a person.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Utilizing a combination of CBT, psychodynamic interpersonal, self-psychological, strengths-based, and ecological perspectives, I aim to help the client identify their greatest goals when addressing their traumas, fears, and psychological challenges. Together we investigate their past in order to understand how these past challenges are developing in the present and jeopardizing their future. I empower them to reclaim their inner power and live the life they desire, not simply the one they live.
