Be yourself, free of judgement
Therapy should be a place where you feel free to be yourself without fear of judgment. I know that seeking therapy and attending the first appointment can be intimidating and anxiety-provoking, but I am proud of you for taking the first step towards feeling better!
The effectiveness of therapy depends not only on the skills a therapist uses, but also on the client/therapist relationship. In order to truly benefit from therapy, clients need to feel comfortable and feel that they can trust and be understood by their therapist. My approach to therapy tends to be warm and authentic, and at times, I even use humor. I bring a lot of my own personality into sessions in hopes that you can too.
I am empathetic and accepting of wherever you are at in your journey, while still encouraging you to grow and change into the best version of yourself. It’s common for people to feel “stuck” and unsure about what to do in order to get better. Together, we can identify treatment goals and strategies that you can use to reach them. Often, changing your thoughts and behaviors can influence what you are feeling and lead to improvements in mental health.
I primarily use approaches such as CBT, TF-CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, and person-centered therapy. I work with children, adolescents, and young adults with a variety of presenting concerns, including anxiety, depression, trauma/grief, self-esteem/body image concerns, and concerns related to sexual orientation and/or gender identity.
