General Office Hours
In Eastern Time
Our first session will focus on getting to know each other and seeing if we're a good fit. Naturally, we'll start to go over what you hope to get out of therapy and some of the issues that have been bothering you. We can also discuss the structure of therapy such as timeframes, frequency, and other expectations. I'm also excited to give you the basics of the type of science and therapy models I adhere to. When it comes to ongoing sessions, I am pretty adaptable to your needs and desires. If you want take away assignments to do during the week, I can provide those. If you are more interested in weekly check ins and keeping it to talking during session, that's great too. Let's collaborate to figure out what's best for you.
The foundation of my work is based on a person-center approach. This means I recognize the uniqueness of each person above and beyond the similar aspects found in mental "disorders". I understand a try to leverage the power of human connection and a supportive relationship to promote healing and resilience in all my clients. In addition, I apply the thoroughly researched techniques and strategies based in ACT and mindfulness. These approaches are complimentary and focus on recognizing the nature of the mind and engaging in a nonreactive way to the inevitable stress we face as humans. Mindfulness is amazing because its benefits have been confirmed through millennia of refinement in the Buddhist tradition, as is now recognized in Western science.
