What does a first session with you look like?

I look to my clients to be the experts of themselves, which encourages them to guide the therapy where it needs to go. What I offer is a space to gain insight in order for that insight to become the catalyst for change. I believe that once a person sees their truth, they have no choice but to accept that truth?�?though we often do our best not to. Each of us develops psychological schemas that teach us how to interact with people and the world. When we grow accustomed to a certain pattern of behavior, however, we look to repeat it, even after it?�?s outlived its usefulness. Addiction, for instance, is a maladaptive coping skill that worked at one time but does no longer.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach to counseling utilizes techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, as well as motivational interviewing with a strong working knowledge of the stages of change in order to help get through the initial discomfort of adopting a new behavior.
