What does a first session with you look like?

I use a collaborative approach to explore your concerns and develop goals. After goals have been collaboratively determined, it is important to experiment with ways those can be implemented in your day-to-day life. Together, we will explore options to discover what is going to work best for you in your journey to feeling better. We will continue to evaluate what is working, and what is not, and think creatively about how you can take the topics covered in our sessions into your daily life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My therapeutic practice is related to Choice Theory and Reality Therapy. From a foundation of warmth and compassion, I encourage a dialogue approach to understand the current disruptions in your life. Each of us has a rich history, which is important to acknowledge. Perhaps more relevant to overcoming obstacles and incorporating positive change, is to understand where you are now, and what choices do you have today. Fulfilling essential needs is part of a person’s present life, more so even than focusing on the past. Taking a close look at the here-and-now will highlight current choices and subsequent pathways toward creating an optimal future.
