Counseling

I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Using evidence-based therapeutic modalities, we'll work collaboratively to understand the root of your challenges, develop healthy coping mechanisms, and create lasting change. Whether navigating anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or life transitions, I'm here to support your journey towards healing.

 

Our work will begin with an initial assessment to fully understand your needs and goals. Together, we'll create a personalized treatment plan. Sessions may involve exploring past experiences, identifying patterns in your thoughts and behaviors, and practicing new strategies for managing emotions and navigating challenges.

Here's what you can expect in our first session:

A Focus on You:  The first session is all about getting to know you, your concerns, and your goals for therapy.  We'll create a safe, non-judgmental space to discuss what brings you in and what you hope to achieve.

Questions and Exploration: I'll ask questions to understand your background, current challenges, and what you envision for your future. You're always welcome to share only what feels comfortable.

Collaboration:  We'll work together to define areas of focus for our work. My goal is to understand your needs and preferences, so we can create a plan that feels supportive and empowering.

Paperwork and Logistics:  We may spend some time going over necessary forms, discussing confidentiality, and answering any questions you have about the therapy process.

Next Steps:  Towards the end of our session, we'll discuss potential directions for our work and next steps. You'll have the option to schedule follow-up appointments based on what fits your needs.

What the First Session Is Not:

-You don't need to have all the answers or even feel fully ready to dive deep. This is a space to start the conversation.
-I won't pressure you to share anything you're not comfortable with. Healing happens at its own pace.

My Commitment:  I'm here to listen with compassion, offer insights, and help you tap into your inner resources to overcome challenges and live a life that feels more meaningful and fulfilling.
