What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

After our intake, we will spend a couple of sessions getting to know each other to establish rapport. Typically, the fourth session we will develop your individual treatment plan where you pick 3-5 goals you want to meet in therapy and I will offer objectives to assist you in meeting goals.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

CBT, DBT, STBSFT, ACT, ERP, and other modalities customized to the client.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I provide a safe space to listen, give feedback without judgment, and offer tools for the client to use. My practice model is an intake (session 1), establish rapport (sessions 2, 3 (possibly longer depending on what needs sharing)), and create a treatment plan (approximately session 4).
