What does a first session with you look like?

An undivided attention with empathic non judgmental presence. A comfortable experience where the client feel safe to share and explore difficult emotions, process negative thought patterns . In that therapeutic atmosphere I want to be fully present to you - walk with and guide you to clarify the problem. This might mean perhaps to identify some of the faulty thinking you might have which might have lead to maladaptive behaviors. I consider myself emphatic and non judgmental therapist. This might take more than one session and after carefully assessing the problem with you - you and I will come up with concrete short and long term goals .Throughout our therapy sessions we would assess the progress, review the goals set and deal with any challenges that might emerge.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize mostly Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and motivational interviewing with the intention of creating a safe space for clients to explore difficult emotions ,process negative thought patterns, identify and build on strength and stay centered and balanced during life transitions and adjustments. My counseling style is interactive , supportive and non judgmental. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and allow them to be their real self and feel safe to be true to themselves and share freely what is bothering them.
