Great to meet you!
Having a good vibe with your therapist is critical to this process. Some feedback I’ve received over the years includes: “I like that you give me direct feedback even when it’s hard to hear” and “I like having concrete things to try”. I wholeheartedly believe in everyone's capacity to feel just a little bit better. I specialize in working with adults with anxiety, grief/loss, and those seeking improved relationships.
*Please note, I only offer individual therapy through the Headway platform.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I describe my approach as eclectic. We might explore values, identify feelings, look at behaviors, consider personality and family, explore hopes and dreams, celebrate successes, and take responsibility for areas of growth. We might consider life domains that are of value to you- from health and wellness to relationships to career to culture. We'll look at what’s keeping you stuck and try things intended to adjust your story and ultimately experience more joy and peace in your life.
What you can expect from our first session
Our time will include exploring your life story (past or present- whatever is relevant to your hopes and dreams) and may include humor, creativity, experiential activities, music, movement, and guided meditation. At times I am very directive and teach a bit based on research and at other times, I am more exploratory. As in most things, balance is important. I'll design each session based on YOUR goals which we'll talk about starting in session 1.
