My style of therapy is straight-forward but also empathetic. I am a listening and thoughtful ear that encourages you to look inward, internalize and face the hard questions. Sessions may be emotionally taxing at times, but the goal is to promote insightfulness and growth within yourself.
Our first session together will be an exploration of your wants and needs throughout the therapy process. It will also be a chance for us to get to know one another and to build a foundation for the rest of our therapeutic relationship. I firmly believe that a therapeutic relationship built on trust and mutual respect is one that can greatly enhance an individuals experience and results.
Success in therapy is different for every individual. Together, we will discuss what success looks like to you and how you fee like it will look when you are "successful".
