Wondering how the therapy process works?
Let me break it down a bit.....
Counseling (a.k.a. therapy or psychotherapy) is a process of healing and personal growth. The process itself, while difficult, can be life changing.
We begin in a comfortable setting in which you are free to be you. It does not matter the circumstances leading to you making the initial appointment; what matters is your commitment to trying something different, something new.
I will help guide you on your journey of self exploration. You will learn ways to begin taking meaningful steps to help you arrive at where you want to be. You will gain tools to help promote self awareness and promote the use of healthy coping skills.
The road to change can be a long and, sometimes, treacherous path, but you won't have to walk it alone. I will be there to help you find what works for best for you, help you deal with and soothe past and present wounds that don't want to heal, and provide support in nonjudgmental ways all the way.
Counseling does not work for everyone. A major factor in this is your "chemistry" with your therapist. I want to help you reach all your goals or help you find the right person to do so. Either way, I want to make sure you win.
As a therapist, I use varying modalities and together, we will find the best modality to help you. Look below to discover more about different types of therapy models I use in sessions.
Please be aware if you are trying to schedule an appointment for your minor child, a legal parent or guardian must attend the first session. Parent engagement throughout your child's treatment is required. Also, for those age 18+, the individual must contact me on their own volition to make an appointment. They are legally adults and I cannot share information with parents without the permission of the 18+ year old.
