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

In our first session together, I want to get to know each other. Learning more about your life and the issues are you facing will help me create a tailored plan to create our goals together.

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

Having been a client-centered therapist for years, I feel my greatest strengths are in active listening and validating my clients' feelings so we can choose how to move forward and process them.

My treatment methods

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy allows us to explore your values and create goals towards them. By accepting your thoughts and feelings, we can mindfully develop more psychological flexibility to respond to life's changes.

Motivational Interviewing

Motivational interviewing can help us find your motivation towards your goals and strengthen it so you can become more self-sufficient in changing behaviors. I often use this with weight loss goals and habit changes.
