What does a first session with you look like?

After the first session we will have a good idea of the path for treatment. As a seasoned therapist, I feel it is my responsibility, as a therapist, to help clients by normalizing the therapeutic process, providing psychoeducation and providing information about the overall benefits of therapy. Also, I believe that therapy should be an exchange between client and therapist. The client discusses and processes issues and concerns. The therapist provides feedback, interpretation, and reflection driven by evidenced based practices.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I feel it's better to look at individuals using a comprehensive lens which is the reason why I use a few different treatment methods. I generally use 3 methods of treatment including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy CBT (challenging negative cognitions, maladaptive behaviors, and negative self talk); Solution Focused Therapy (ensuring that you have the tools, resources, and strategies needed to be where you want to be when therapy has ended); Systemic Therapy (understanding how you interact with others on an individual level, identifying stuck points, and exploring how your larger community impacts you personally). I have also found that at least half of my clients are able to benefit from Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) which is a traumatic focused therapy.
