What is your style/approach to therapy?

I take a person centered approach, meaning we will work on what is important to you. If you don't know where to start I can provide some guidance. We will work together to address your concerns and get you where you want to be.

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

Some clients arrive with goals in mind, and others are not sure where to start. If a client is unsure I start by asking what they would like to be different in their lives. They make be feeling unsatisfied with relationships, work, general stress, or other areas-or they may just have a sense of discontentment. Regardless, we will talk about where you are, where you want to be, and create a plan to get you there.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

I find it helpful to check in on goals regularly to see if they have been met or if they need to be modified. However, I find client self-reports to be the most telling. Generally you'll know you're making progress when you feel less burdened by the issues that brought you to therapy. You may feel like a weight has been lifted off you or a sense of calm. You will feel better equipped to deal with strong emotions or challenges that arise.
