What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

In my experience, clients begin to feel vitalized, less anxious, and more free as they explore new options in their lives outside of our sessions. Those are successes we celebrate and a sign that they are reaping the benefits of therapy! Along the way, I always encourage clients to share how they are experiencing the therapy, which helps to strengthen our therapy relationship and to create new direction in the work.

What does a first session with you look like?

I think of our first session as the beginning of building our therapy relationship and an opportunity for me to learn about you. In an initial session, I give my full attention to learning about who you are as a person, what brings you to therapy, and your goals for therapy work. I ask questions so that we can collaboratively build an understanding of what you are going through and what is the best roadmap for treatment.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I integrate cognitive-behavioral and humanistic therapy approaches to help you explore deeply and to make meaningful change in your life. I am active and engaged during sessions. I strike a balance between careful listening and asking questions that help you to uncover deeper insight. Sometimes being active means supporting you as you make a new emotional discovery and sometimes it means collaborating on a change plan for you to take outside our sessions. I believe the best therapy happens when we work together as a team.
