What does a first session with you look like?

Firstly, it might be helpful to get a clearer picture on what your first session will look like. The first session is the moment when the therapist begins to build rapport, (and correct, if necessary) client’s expectations for therapy, while at the same time beginning a period of assessment in which you will be able to discuss in detail the problems that have led you to seek therapy. The therapist will also ask you more general questions about your family, work and home. Next, we will develop clear treatment goals and together we will work to achieve these goals. Throughout the sessions, will track your progress on your goals and problem solve ways to reach them.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The quality of the therapeutic alliance, which is the relationship established between the patient and the therapist in therapy, is the most robust predictor of treatment. The fundamental attitudes for the establishment of the therapeutic alliance are trust, active listening, empathy, unconditional acceptance and authenticity.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

When I was in college, I went into therapy to cope with a family member's life-threatening diagnosis. Therapy helped me so much, in so many ways, that I decided to become a therapist myself so that I could do the same for others.
