My approach to therapy is that I strongly believe that I am not the expert on you, YOU are the expert on you. My goal is to work with you to help you find your own answers as I truly believe you have them and something has kept you from seeing them for yourself.
Allowing yourself to freely share with a therapist can change your life forever.
Our first meeting is considered an initial assessment. This is a way for you to get to know me and for me to learn more about you. I appreciate that choosing a therapist is an important decision and I want to make sure that you feel comfortable and at ease with me. My typical session is 50 minutes, once a week or once every other week (an hour and 20 minutes for couples). Our sessions can be a hybrid of in person meetings and remote sessions. I do offer half sessions after I have worked with a client for several months. It is important for us to have built a solid foundation in our own therapeutic relationship prior to transitioning to shorter sessions.
There is no way to determine how many sessions you may need at the outset. Some individuals feel their needs are met within four sessions whereas others may want significantly more. We will discuss your goals together, and I will continually check-in as we progress to make sure your needs are being met.
Finally, it is important to me to honor each person I work with as an individual with a unique worldview based on their background and experiences. I am sensitive to and seek to understand the many identities every person possesses including gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, and the like.
I work with teens, young adults, adults, parents and couples. Click below to learn more about the services I offer.
