What does a first session with you look like?

I attempt to gather information in an easy manner, not "drilling" questions so people can feel comfortable sharing. I inquire whether previous counseling has been attempted to understand prior experiences with therapy and how it was helpful or not. I am a hopeful, positive person and try to help others find their strengths, positivity and hope within them as well. I will ask what goals a client has for themselves for therapy and life so we can focus on achieving those goals. As an experienced therapist, I recognize that people have had difficulty in their lives and do not diminish their story or not discuss the "hard parts" while we try to find ways to heal.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy frequently but also use a lot of analogies to help people understand concepts or how a different way of approaching a problem might provide an answer or change they are seeking in their life. Discussing situations from a different viewpoint also can help people let go of expectations that may be hurting them. I recommend books, journaling, stress management techniques, holistic approach to health and well being, perhaps art or other hobbies that bring people calmness, joy, or relationships. I try to work with each individual and their strengths to overcome what blocks them from a path of happiness.
