What is your style/approach to therapy?

Mindful thinking: Mindfulness practices can help to increase our ability to regulate emotions, decrease stress, anxiety and depression. It can also help us to focus our attention, as well as to observe our thoughts and feelings without judgment. Solution Focused therapy: Short-term goal-focused therapeutic approach, which helps clients change by constructing solutions rather than focusing on problems. Crisis intervention, positive reinforcement, time-limited activities, and immediate behavior reinforcement.

What does a first session with you look like?

I assist my clients with tapping into their natural abilities to self reflect and problem solve. I offer guidance with exploring your identified challenges and will suggest activities for personal use and or to share during sessions.
