Message to clients

I use a talk therapy approach with clients and I am an attentive and focused listener. I will start where you are and allow you the space to be seen, heard, and validated. Some of my patients come to session with notes they've prepared since their last encounter, and others are organic and spontaneous allowing their train of thought to surface naturally without an agenda. During initial sessions, I tend to listen deeply as I am learning about who you are. As we get to know each other, I will become more motivational or directive depending on your wants and needs. I also regularly ask for your feedback regarding your treatment so that I can improve my service for you.

We will not be a good fit if you expect me to tell you what to do. What I will do is provide thoughtful options for you to decide on your own. Some therapists have the approach of leading you, or "walking in front of you" and telling you what to do. My approach is that I will stand beside you on your journey, and eventually follow your lead as you take control of your thoughts and decisions. I will walk alongside you in a supportive role, and I will be there for you when you trip or stumble, helping you back up and nudging you forward to achieve your goals.
