What does a first session with you look like?

Life can be difficult and many people will experience ups and downs throughout life. I am here to help guide you, support you, and encourage you. You will be heard and validated. I strive to create a safe place where you feel comfortable sharing your thoughts, feelings, and emotions without being judged. I will teach you coping skills to help manage difficult situations such as: life transitions, grief, mental health struggles and substance use disorders. My goal is to create a treatment plan that will foster growth, create positive experiences, and implement healthy coping skills so you can increase resiliency, improve quality of life, enhance well-being, and become a happier person.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I collaborate with my clients to develop a treatment plan that will help achieve their desired goals. I provide support and psychoeducation to my clients. I teach coping skills to help manage anxiety, depression, and stress. I use evidence-based practices such as: CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Motivational Interviewing, Talk Therapy, Exposure Therapy, and Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP).
