What does a first session with you look like?

Where are you with your relationship with YOU. Our first session is dedicated to exploring domains of everyday living to see what we need to give energy to. Therapy sessions go incredibly fast, and we discuss so many different things, that I give you exercises to keep you focused on the areas you want to grow through. To heal we need to feel, and therapy can be painful, scary, and confusing. Together we work through these emotions to get to a space of healing.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize mindfulness and stress reduction techniques, trauma therapy, cognitive behavior therapy to question those negative thoughts and meditation, to learn to quiet the mind and control intrusive thoughts
