HELPING YOU create a stronger relationship

What To Expect

If you have never been in therapy but are curious, or, if you are re-entering therapy, here’s what you can expect. I offer a free 30-minute virtual consultation that provides you an opportunity to share your therapy goals, hear my approach based on your specific goals, and determine if my services will facilitate the progress you desire. During our first session, I will explain confidentiality, the parameters of therapy, and the nature of the therapeutic relationship. These initial sessions where I will gather key aspects of your unique life story will enable me to conceptualize how best to approach therapy with you so that your experience can be successful. We will also be able to determine together the appropriate frequency of sessions so that therapy can be most beneficial for you.

How Does Therapy Work?

Because trauma, PTSD, attachment wounds, and dissociation are often accompanied by coping mechanisms that help us feel ‘good’ temporarily, part of restoration can include acquiring more adaptive alternatives to create your best self. I have crafted together a 4-pronged approach to maximize therapeutic outcomes: Psychodynamic therapy, EMDR therapy, Attachment Theory, and Family Systems, augmented by skill-building via Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). What’s the difference?
