What does a first session with you look like?

This process is about you. I want to understand who you are and what you want you want to work on during our time together. During the initial session, I will be asking you about your goals for therapy, your life history, your mood and the challenges you are experiencing. I will also ask a few questions about your health and lifestyle. In ongoing sessions, we will discuss your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. We will learn to recognize unhelpful thoughts and how to change them. We will learn to develop a greater sense of confidence in our abilities. We will explore the roots of your problems together. I will offer support and insights. I may offer suggestions, or ask that you complete tasks in between sessions. We will discuss your progress regularly and how you feel about the therapy process.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I provide trauma-informed and strengths-based therapy. Sessions may be a combination of insight-oriented therapy, supportive therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques depending on the individual. I have received specialized training in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Smoking Cessation and Perinatal Mental Health Concerns
