What does a first session with you look like?

My interpersonal style is very direct. I will never infantilize you and I will never judge you. If we end up being a good fit, you will leave sessions having learned more about yourself and being equipped with tools to take back control in your life. I will break down shame, stigma, and I will support you in your growth. My goal is to empower you and give the tools you need so that you can then fire me - - in that, my goal for therapy is to make it so you no longer need my help, and so that you can move onward and confidently live your best life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am trained in evidence-based practices such as EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Seeking Safety, Interpersonal Psychotherapy, as well as Psychodynamic Therapy. Together, we can create a treatment plan based on your needs and what works with your personality and your learning style. I am primarily oriented in EMDR and I provide a lot of psychoeducation on neurobiology, but I will blend whichever modalities necessary to get you where you want to go. My belief is that if we name it and frame it, we can tame it - - if you are willing, I will teach you everything I have learned about the brain, human behavior, and human nature.
