What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

When I was in undergrad studying to be an athletic trainer, I discovered the part that I enjoyed the most was talking with the athletes that I was working with. When they brought an issue into the therapy session I enjoyed helping them work through that while we were doing their training session. I realized that instead of going into sports medicine that I needed to go into mental health counseling. I have a very long family history of substance abuse and essentially I wanted to work on being a healthier person so that I could stop the cycle of addiction in my family.

What does a first session with you look like?

During our first session, I usually focus on getting to know you. I have specific questions I ask so that I can get a good general idea of what your are wanting to work on as well as the biggest concerns that you have in your life currently. From there you identify the issues or concerns that are the most pressing and we develop a plan together of how you prefer to address those issues and/or concerns.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in therapy sessions. I have found that many of our intrusive thoughts as well as maladaptive behaviors come from a throught process that is somewhat flawed from the beginning. My goal is to help my clients identify the things in their thinking process that tends to cause them the most problem and to cognitive challenge the way that they think. I believe that if we can change the way that we think in a positive way then we can change that we behave in a positive way as well.
