What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach to therapy is deeply rooted in the belief that each individual's journey is unique, and thus, requires a tailored, empathetic, and empowering therapeutic process. I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into my practice, focusing on the power of understanding and reshaping thought patterns, enhancing emotional regulation, and building coping skills to navigate life's challenges. I strive to create a compassionate and accepting environment where you can feel safe to explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By fostering a collaborative relationship, we work together to identify your goals, leverage your strengths, and address the areas where you seek change. In our sessions, we will explore mindfulness techniques, acceptance strategies, and behavioral changes that can help you lead a more balanced and fulfilling life. My style is interactive and supportive, emphasizing growth, self-discovery, and resilience. I believe in walking hand-in-hand with you on this path, offering guidance, support, and insight as you move towards understanding yourself better and achieving your personal goals.

What does a first session with you look like?

In our first session together, you can expect a warm, welcoming environment where your comfort and safety are my top priorities. This initial meeting is all about getting to know each other and establishing a foundation of trust and understanding. I'll invite you to share about yourself, your life, and what brings you to therapy, but always at a pace that feels right for you. We'll discuss your goals for therapy and any specific issues you're hoping to address. This is also a great time for you to ask questions about my approach and what you can expect from our sessions together. I believe it's crucial that you feel heard and understood, so I'll be listening intently, seeking to understand your experiences and perspectives. Additionally, we'll talk about how therapy works, including confidentiality, session frequency, and ways we can work together to navigate your journey. My aim is to make this process as clear and comfortable as possible, ensuring you leave the session feeling supported and optimistic about our path forward. Remember, this first session is the beginning of a partnership. It's about building a connection and setting the stage for the transformative work we'll do together.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success in therapy is deeply personal and can vary greatly from one individual to another, reflecting the unique goals and challenges of each person. However, there are common signs and milestones that indicate progress on this journey: 1. Increased Self-Awareness: You begin to understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors more deeply, recognizing patterns that may have been previously unclear. This awareness is a crucial step towards change. 2. Improved Coping Skills: You'll find yourself managing stress, anxiety, or other emotions more effectively, using new strategies and tools we've explored together. The effectiveness of these skills in challenging situations is a tangible marker of progress. 3. Enhanced Emotional Regulation: Success is often seen in the ability to regulate emotions more effectively, experiencing fewer intense emotional spikes and recovering more quickly from them. 4. Shifts in Thought Patterns: Progress can be identified through changes in how you perceive and react to situations. You might notice a decrease in negative self-talk or catastrophic thinking, with an increase in positive, rational thoughts. 5. Behavioral Changes: Making different choices or taking actions that align more closely with your values and goals is a clear sign of progress. This could include setting healthier boundaries, engaging in self-care, or pursuing interests that were previously neglected. 6. Improved Relationships: As you grow in therapy, your relationships may also reflect this change. You might find yourself communicating more effectively, experiencing less conflict, or feeling more connected to others. 7. Sense of Empowerment: Feeling more in control of your life and decisions is a significant indicator of success. This includes taking responsibility for your well-being and feeling capable of facing future challenges. Success is not about reaching a state of perfection but about ongoing growth, learning, and adaptation. As your therapist, I'll be there to celebrate these victories with you, big or small, and to support you as you continue to build a life that feels meaningful and fulfilling.

Work History

Throughout my journey as a licensed professional counselor, I've had the privilege of supporting young women and teens as they navigate the complex maze of anxiety, college adjustment, and peer issues. My experience has been enriched by working in diverse settings that have allowed me to deeply understand the nuances of mental health challenges at different life stages. Specializing in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), I've honed my skills in a hands-on environment, learning to tailor these evidence-based strategies to meet the unique needs of each individual. This experience has empowered me to help clients embrace acceptance, enhance their coping mechanisms, and transform their thought processes into ones that serve their growth and well-being. I've always believed that the therapeutic journey should be a collaborative one, where clients feel safe, heard, and valued. My approach has been shaped by countless conversations, shared struggles, and triumphs with those I've worked alongside. This has not only reinforced my expertise in managing anxiety and life transitions but has also instilled a deep commitment to fostering resilience and self-understanding in those I serve. As we embark on this therapeutic journey together, know that my diverse background and dedication to your growth are the cornerstones of the safe, supportive, and empowering space I create for all my clients.
