What does a first session with you look like?

After our first session, I expect you to begin to identify unhealthy thinking and behavior patterns and to begin to develop tools to manage the things that you do have control over. You will not always see me as a friend. As a therapist, I am here to push you when needed, but I will always do so with your consent. I am a listening ear, a moderator, a challenger, a supporter. I want you to walk away from our sessions with more self-confidence and knowledge, knowing you are strong.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use person-centered therapy practices, focusing on who you are, and how you see yourself. I like to use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques where we explore how your thinking influences your behaviors and emotions. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy techniques, focusing on mindfulness, emotional regulation, and distress tolerance. Trauma-focused CBT can help clients to learn to sit with their trauma, acknowledge and handle the pain and frustration without becoming overwhelmed and held down by trauma.
