What does a first session with you look like?

I like to start off by getting to know my clients and what brings them to therapy. I ask a great deal of questions about their history to better understand them as a whole. Together we create treatment goals where I check in periodically during subsequent sessions. I provide psycho-education on mental illness, educate on coping skills and I assign homework. You can expect further understanding of the presenting problem, gaining insight into mental illness and acquire the tools to manage the symptoms.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I like to start off with a person centered approach to focus on the person, treating them with dignity, respect and compassion. I am a big fan of cognitive behavioral therapy; it is an evidenced based treatment modality which I find very effective. I also use solution focused approach, behavioral therapy and motivational therapy depending on the person and the presenting problem.
