What does a first session with you look like?

During my sessions, please feel comfortable to express your feelings, because you are in a safe environment whether it is in my private office or telehealth. I can grantee you that you will not feel judged or unheard. I will challenge your irrational thoughts that are contributing to the behaviors that you can make appropriate decisions without feeling guided or mislead.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

Both DBT and CBT are evidence-based therapies; however, DBT was originated from CBT. The goal for behavioral therapy is to help clients function appropriately by challenging negative thoughts and improving the client’s ability to manage their emotions.

However, I do use other techniques that are more appropriate and tailored to meet the client’s
