What does a first session with you look like?

My goal is to teach clients tools so they can manage on their own. We will work to identify the triggers and negative thought patterns and find ways to make them more positive. I like to start with what is distressing to the client in the present day so they can improve their functioning. This usually leads to dealing with the 'old stuff' that people carry around with them. It all comes together in a more positive, clear path forward.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use Mindfulness techniques and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as I believe clients to be active participants in finding their path. It doesn't help if they chose a path that I think they should be on. It is important for clients to find their own path or it is not going to help them feel better and move forward.
