What does a first session with you look like?

You can expect to take away a lot of practical strategies to get started with symptom relief right away. Therapy sessions can sometimes be hard, but very often, you walk out feeling a lot lighter too. Sessions build on each other, so the more we get to know each other, the greater the impact we will have in slowing down unhelpful thoughts and increasing your ability to manage uncomfortable emotions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use a blend of client-centered, cognitive therapies --specifically Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused CBT and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) along with lots of different kinds of Mindfulness and strategies from Motivational Interviewing and Solutions Focused Therapy. I believe strongly in giving people options and choices and view our work together as a full partnership designed to get you to your goals. But lesson #1 is - always put the oxygen mask on yourself first. Because you're no good to the people you love if you can't breathe.
