Great to meet you!
As a clinician, the most important thing I can give to my clients is trust. Trust that I can hold space for them while they do their work. Trust that I have taken care of myself so that they do not feel the need to take care of me during their healing process. Trust that I have done the work necessary to provide them with best practice, therapy techniques, models, and delivery of care.
A bit about my approach to therapy
As an experiential therapist, it is my job to help you get in touch with the deeper parts of yourself by helping you identify the root cause of the issue, explore negative cycles, access feelings (both superficial and underlying), redefining the problem to help you to connect with disowned aspects of yourself. In this way, we can develop a plan that alleviates the root cause of the issue.
In therapy sessions, we look at feelings, body sensations, thoughts, and behavior.
What you can expect from our first session
The decision to start therapy with a licensed professional is like setting out on an expedition to both rediscover old territories and to discover new territories. One set of questions therapy asks is “What is it like to be me now?” “How do my past experiences affect who I am now?” “What is getting in my way, preventing me from being the person I feel I can be?”
