What to expect
The first step is for you to contact me by phone, email, or through this contact form.
Please inform me of the best way to contact you. ANY communication with me is confidential
and safe. I will contact you to speak and schedule a first session.
Often by the end of your first session I will be able to offer you an assessment of your situation and tell you whether or not you would benefit from my services. If I will not be able to help you,
I will refer you to a trusted professional colleague. The first two or three sessions are usually necessary for an in-depth and comprehensive evaluation. By then, we will both discuss our views of the situation, set therapeutic goals, and discuss the possible outcomes of treatment.
I encourage a collaborative conversation that will continue throughout our therapeutic relationship; we will both continually assess and discuss your progress.
I constantly update my skills through training in a variety of models and use the latest knowledge from neuroscience research in my work.During our sessions, I use evidence-based practice interventions including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness, Solution Focus Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Self-exploration leads to change and requires patience, time, and a collaborative effort.
The decision to seek therapy is the first step towards healing. If you are seeking therapy now,
you are aware that currently you do not fulfill your potential, are willing to accept that you
need an objective and nonjudgmental person to assist you in regaining control, and are motivated to improve the quality of your life. These three important realizations not only indicate strength and insight, but also form the building block to achieve results and make therapy successful.
