What does a first session with you look like?

At each session, we'll usually check in with how the week went for you, what you've seen as progress, or maybe a situation that made you feel upset, or happy in some way. We'll look for reasons why those things happened, and how they made you feel -- especially how they made you feel about yourself. At the end of each session, you'll have an opportunity to think about how you want the next week to be for you --- and I'll help you figure out what you can do that might make things better that week.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Scott Miller did a study on outcomes of therapy, and he found that clients always said it was no one particular modality of therapy or theory of therapy that helped the most. What clients said helped them the most was the therapeutic relationship -- that if they trusted their therapist, liked their therapist and felt like the time spent in therapy was comfortable and helpful, that was what they said helped them the most. I like to think that I"m a very supportive therapist. I'm very straightforward and truthful, but I'm also rooting for my clients to win. And I try to provide an atmosphere of acceptance: I'm an advocate for my clients, and I am so very much wanting them to feel better, get rid of whatever thoughts were hurting them, and maybe even find that therapy can be enjoyable, too.
