What does a first session with you look like?

You may be wondering what to expect from therapy. The first session can be a source of anxiety for some people. If you are nervous about your first therapy session, that?�?s normal. Remember that the goal of the first session is for us to get acquainted. You can expect a therapeutic environment that is compassionate, empathetic, private and safe. Successful therapy is based on a collaborative effort. We will work as a team to address the obstacles you?�?re facing and strategize on ways to achieve your goals. It?�?s helpful to understand that people go to therapy for all sorts of reasons such as healing from trauma, working out conflicts or just having a neutral space to talk about their life. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy, it is valid and I am here to support you.
