Our first session will be about taking some time for me to get to know more about you and what brought you into therapy. The first appointment can be filled with anxiety and some nerves when meeting someone new, and most especially when it may be your first time doing therapy. My goal is to use the first meeting as a way to go over some of what the upcoming weeks will be like in therapy, allow for you to have space to ask questions, and to start to gather some information as to what your goals are and how we can work together to get you to a place where you feel more secure, fulfilled, and emotionally stronger within life's journey.
I am familiar with evidenced based therapies such as CBT and DBT and have been trained in both. When working with clients, however, I feel that I tend to focus on the relationship, where my client is at emotionally during the current time of our session, and work on trying to find ways of working together to help provide more support, reassurance, and reinforce or identify strategies that can help with promoting a sense of calm and peace. We all come from different backgrounds and have a wide array of day to day stressors that may impact us differently from one day to the next- from one moment to the next. Although I may come into session with an idea of what we can tackle, it is always important for me to make sure I am meeting you with where you are at in life.
