What does a first session with you look like?

My treatment approach is open, genuine, and compassionate so you can feel comfortable exploring difficult issues. I have experience working with individuals of all ages, couples, and families, helping them find their strengths and abilities so they can live a fulfilling life. In sessions, I will provide a safe space to help you clarify what matters to you while listening deeply and most importantly, being nonjudgemental.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or any other issue, I will help you recognize underlying problems, fully realize your strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things in a different, healthier way.
