What does a first session with you look like?

In our sessions, you can expect a supportive and non-judgmental environment where your concerns and goals are at the forefront. I am committed to providing you with a highly personalized experience, focusing on your unique strengths and challenges. Together, we will work collaboratively to develop effective strategies for managing stress, reducing anxiety, building self-discipline, enhancing self-esteem, and boosting your overall confidence. My approach is centered on empathy, active listening, and evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and motivational interviewing. You can anticipate meaningful progress, increased self-awareness, and the tools you need to overcome obstacles and create positive change in your life.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My therapeutic approach draws from a range of evidence-based treatment methods tailored to your unique needs and goals. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) plays a significant role, helping you identify and challenge negative thought patterns that contribute to stress, anxiety, and self-doubt. Through CBT, we work together to reframe unhelpful beliefs and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Additionally, I incorporate strengths-based therapy to highlight and nurture your innate abilities, fostering a sense of empowerment and resilience. Motivational Interviewing techniques guide you towards making positive changes by exploring your personal values and motivations. Active listening and empathy are the cornerstones of our sessions, ensuring a safe and supportive space where you can openly discuss your experiences. Exposure therapy, when appropriate, aids in addressing specific fears or anxieties through gradual and controlled exposure to triggers. These methods, combined with your commitment and my guidance, form the foundation for a holistic and effective therapeutic journey, ultimately leading to personal growth and improved well-being.
