What does a first session with you look like?

I have training in anxiety disorders and depression. I use a strength-based approach to therapy to help clients identify and recognize their resilience and foster healthy coping strategies to improve their lives. You will learn practical coping mechanisms from the first session to manage your issues. My approach to therapy depends on the client. I mainly practice eclectic therapy. I do not ascribe to the doctor knows best philosophy or the independent choice model of giving all decision-making authority to the client. I prefer to practice from the shared decision-making model, where you and I will collaborate on the best treatment for your issues. My attribute styles are warm, affirming, and empowering.
