What does a first session with you look like?

After our first session, I hope you will feel somewhat comfortable with me and have hope for feeling better about yourself. We will develop a treatment plan and I will give a diagnosis if required by your insurance company. I do not prescribe medications, but if I feel they are needed I will suggest you see a psychiatrist or psychiatric nurse practitioner. I may suggest a specific treatment modality as listed below.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize a compassionate model, with our relationship being the most important element in healing, along with cognitive behavioral changes, mindfulness, relaxation techniques, EMDR which is a form of trauma healing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. If I feel you might benefit from your family or significant other being involved in treatment I will advise you to do so. I find incorporating spirituality in therapy can be an asset, however, this is entirely up to you.
