What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

Your therapeutic experience will depend on your needs and goals. I have never lived in your body or walked in your shoes, so you will always be the expert in our relationship. I am here to listen, support, and help you achieve your goals. We will be a collaborative team!

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session is very different from the rest. At the first session, I will collect information and conduct assessments. I ask a lot of questions, but you are always welcome to provide information you feel is important and pertinent, even if I don't ask.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach is relaxed and casual. I'm not here to judge you, so don't worry about how you're dressed or what your hair looks like. Bring your coffee/tea/water and let's chat. I am here to guide you through the process, so please let me know if you're new to therapy or have difficulty getting started. I can help!
