Message to clients

It takes a lot of bravery to reach out and start therapy. It can be scary to think about not trying to do this on our own anymore and it can be pretty vulnerable to talk with someone about what’s been going on in life. I nonjudgmentally and empathetically, go at your pace for exploring vulnerable areas. I also encourage clients to share feedback with me-what is working, what do you like, what’s not working, etc. You are the best judge about what you need, so we pay close attention to this. Our therapeutic relationship is also a very important factor in this process, so it’s important to feel like it’s the right fit and I may check in and see how the therapeutic relationship feels for you.

The first session or two focuses on background information. I provide a thorough assessment in order to understand as much as I can about you and what you’ve been experiencing. We then set goals and then work towards those goals through the variety of techniques above. When we have met or are moving closer to goals, individuals will move down from weekly sessions to biweekly or monthly sessions, until they feel confident to approach what brought them to counseling and feel complete with their process in therapy.
