What does a first session with you look like?

In the very first session clients should expect to be empowered. I feel strongly that a client's recovery is achieved by what they do. I will work collaboratively with the client to achieve goals. My goal is make a client not need me anymore and walk away with the tools for life's challenges. Clients should expect from me non-judgement, empathy and space for them to live and speak their truth. My agreement is not required but my acceptance is.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I consider myself to be eclectic in my approach. However, I use a lot cognitive behavioral techniques, challenging faulty beliefs and questioning if one's beliefs are still useful today. I am very logical, and sometimes there may not be a theory that fits. I meet the client where they are. Theories are not facts.
