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

During our first therapy session, I will create a safe and supportive space for you to share your struggles, concerns, and goals. I will listen actively and non-judgmentally as you discuss your experiences and emotions. Through open and honest communication, we will work together to identify the root of your struggles and areas of improvement. Additionally, I will collaborate with you to establish therapeutic goals and develop a plan to address your challenges effectively. My goal is to help you gain insight, coping skills, and strategies to overcome your obstacles and improve your well-being.

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

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

CBT, or Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps patients understand the thoughts and feelings that influence their behaviors. It is commonly used to treat a wide range of disorders, including phobias, addiction, depression, and anxiety. CBT is generally short-term and focused on helping clients deal with a very specific problem. During the course of treatment, people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. The underlying concept behind CBT is that our thoughts and feelings play a fundamental role in our behavior. For example, a person who spends a lot of time thinking about plane crashes, runway accidents, and other air disasters may find themselves avoiding air travel. The goal of cognitive behavioral therapy is to teach patients that while they cannot control every aspect of the world around them, they can take control of how they interpret and deal with things in their environment.

Couples Counseling

In couples counseling, the relationship is the focus, although each partner should also expect to focus on self-improvement and self-awareness. Through therapy, couples can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening their relationships or going their separate ways.


Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy, focuses on unconscious processes as they are manifested in a person's present behavior. The goal of this therapy is for the client to understand and cope better with these feelings by talking about these experiences. This approach to therapy believes that our behavior and feelings are strongly affected by unconscious motives, that our childhood experiences shape our adult relationships and interactions, and that issues or conflicts that are not fully resolved in our past may influence our actions and thoughts in the present. The therapist's role in psychodynamic therapy is to help the client explore and understand hidden patterns and unresolved issues that may be causing distress or difficulty in their current life. They do this through methods such as free association (encouraging the client to talk freely about whatever comes to mind) and dream analysis. Psychodynamic therapy can be used to treat a wide range of mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression, panic disorders, stress, and post-traumatic stress disorder. The therapy is often long-term and requires regular sessions over a period of months or years.
