How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

I work collaboratively with clients to determine their goals for therapy. In our first session or two we talk about what has been going on, how it is effecting you, and what you would like to be different. From there, I assist in formulating specific goals you would like to work towards during therapy.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I believe in empowering my clients to dig deep and harness their own intuition and resilience. Therapy is hard work, and most of the work is on you. I can help you define your goals, identify barriers, work through trauma, and develop your insight, but I cannot do the work for you. I do not have to live with the choices you make going forward; you do. This is the most exciting part of therapy!! The hard work you put in is all yours and so worthwhile when you discover you can heal, you can embody your authentic self, and you can live a joyful life.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

If you do not feel comfortable with me and do not even like me in the slightest, you can choose another therapist! I want you to work with someone you feel good about, because all research shows, it is the relationship with your therapist that matters more than which approach or technique your therapist uses. I want you to succeed and if that means choosing another therapist, please do!! Therapists are people too and we know we are not a good fit for every client. And that is okay.
