What does a first session with you look like?

After the first session my hope is that each client walks away feeling heard, understood and with a sense of relief. I know that finding a new therapist can be anxiety provoking and I believe that finding the best fit is very important. I believe therapy is collaborative and I strive to build a trusting and safe environment for my clients. My clients can expect to be treated with respect and without judgment. Therapy will help you understand your thoughts, feelings, and reactions, aiding you in healing and growth, leading towards a life that feels more meaningful, grounded and joyful. I welcome the opportunity to help you identify and reach your personal goals.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize an eclectic, integrative approach to therapy which is individualized to meet each client's specific needs. My therapy style is active and engaged, utilizing years of education and experience based training, combined with personal experience. I believe that insight and awareness, while very important, are not enough and strive to equip my clients with new skills and tools. My approach to therapy is client centered and can include: CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Trauma Focused, Family Systems, Gottman Method, Imago Therapy and Mindfulness.
