What does a first session with you look like?

My goal from my initial contact with someone is that, by the end of our first conversations, they feel that I have listened to them. So the first session will mostly involve open-ended questions that gently draw the other person involved in the process.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

I have noticed that many clients who I support don't understand the connection between mind and body. Many would describe some of their symptoms that are rooted in physical elements, such as chronic headaches, gastrointestinal issues, or hypertension. I provide awareness about the mind-body connection, that we practice healthiness among those two entities, then we are likely to be healthy overall in our lives.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

I will work collaboratively with clients to determine what they would like to accomplish as a result of coming to therapy. We will identify the clients' strengths and draw from them while formulating goals because it is important that clients see themselves in a positive way. The client will get an understanding of the SMART goal, being specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound.
