What does a first session with you look like?

I build a relationship with my clients that's foremost in developing trust and confidence in learning to change. I help clients identify the triggers that precede your mental health symptoms along with how to challenge irrational thoughts and restructure your thinking so that you start feeling better. Learning to be mindful of yourself and your environment is the first big step to healing. Learning to be accepting of what you can't control and practicing self care skills to reset your body's response to everyday stressors and anxiety will help you gain control again. Our mind, body, and environment are all connected; therefore, we need to be true to ourselves in our needs and congruent with our gut feeling. Take care of yourself and everything else will begin to fall into place.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I primarily practice a Mindfulness Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approach. This is where you will learn how behavior, thoughts, and feelings are all connected, how to break unhealthy cycles and how to start restructuring your thought processes. The mindfulness aspect helps you to reset your body from a survival mode of the autonomic nervous system that causes anxiety to a more relaxed parasympathetic rest and digest mode where you can think more logically. Techniques include deep breathing, deep muscle relaxation, acceptance thought processes, staying in the moment, guided imagery, and loving kindness mantras. For those that have trouble expressing themselves or developing trust, I will integrate expressive arts therapy of play therapy, music therapy or art therapy.
