What does a first session with you look like?

Our sessions together stem from you. We discuss what you want and make plans based not upon what I think will work best for you but what you think works best for you. We will tailor interventions with you in mind. I always say, if an intervention does not work for you, it does not work. I can't say that the road will always be easy. I can't say that you will leave every session feeling amazing. But I can promise you that I will be with you throughout the entire process. We will celebrate the small victories and examine the failures for the lessons that they may teach. Together, we will find ways for you to live a happier, healthier life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I like to employ a strategy of a mixture of cognitive behavioral therapy and psychoanalytic therapy. I do this for a few reasons. Cognitive behavioral therapy creates early success. It gives you techniques to handle bursts of negative emotions and methods of getting through the tough times. It teaches you that you can weather the storms of life. It gives you the ability to control your own mind and body. Once you have that knowledge, we can delve deeper into your past and thoughts. This will help you to incorporate the trauma that you have experienced in the past to make your future better.
