What does a first session with you look like?

We will set some preliminary goals at the first meeting, decide how often to meet and begin focusing on specific issues. I will ask you to do some work between sessions, usually reviewing CBT concepts and identifying those that you can relate to. I will be asking you to be mindful of how you think, feel and behave and help you make connections between them. I want you to leave each session with a feeling that you can overcome problems in your life and feel empowered to do so. When you feel like you have met your therapy goals, we will have a happy celebration at the end of our time together. Happy endings are important as so many relationships end on a negative note. You will have someone who you trust and who knows you so you can reach out if times get tough again.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

CBT, cognitive behavioral therapy, makes connections between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors to help us better understand our patterns both healthy and unhealthy. I also use psychoeducational techniques to help people live in the world as none of us can exist completely alone. I understand and explain interpersonal dynamics and help improve communication with those around us, especially those most important in our lives.
