What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session will be a chance for me to find out about why you're coming to therapy and for you to decide if I'm the right therapist for you. We'll discuss your goals and begin to create a plan to achieve them. After that, we'll work together to implement that plan and periodically take time to evaluate our progress and decide if the goals were met, if we need a new plan, or if we are done with therapy.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My general approach is person-centered: the goal is to understand your experience and help you feel understood. During the therapeutic process, I use a variety of tools from evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Solution-focused therapy and Strength-based therapy.
