What does a first session with you look like?

Clients should expect a warm, friendly and welcoming vibe from me. I work somewhat intuitively and am open to navigating our work together with wherever you are at. But I'm also down with structure and goals if that's your preference too. I tend towards being talkative and curious but am also told that I am a good listener and can get out of the way and reflect and witness when you feel motivated to lead. Some of my specialty areas of interest include depression, anxiety, panic, work/career confusion, overcoming painful childhoods, abusive or unhealthy relationships, disordered eating and/or body image distortions (I work in a body positive model), trauma and C-PTSD, life goals, sexual health (I'm sex positive), and a whole host of other topics.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I typically work from a psychodynamic background but also can tend towards a more solution-focused, goal-oriented model as needed. I employ Trauma Focused CBT and CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, Gestalt, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Exposure Therapy, and many other modalities depending on the client's needs and preferences. Sometimes in a session allowing space for the client to just vent is what is needed and other times a more intentional and guided experience will occur. Above all, building a trusting and positive relationship between therapist and client is a cornerstone of the work I value most.
