Personal Experience & Biography

I am not the therapist who comes in with all the answers. I believe the client is the expert in this journey, I just have some tools to help them figure out the solutions. We work together to forge a path toward an outcome. If a client needs additional tools, I am responsible for identifying and getting those tools, it is the client’s job to use them with my help.

I think the session starts with connection and that connection starts the moment we meet. Meeting for the first time can be hard, so I work to make a client feel comfortable and relaxed by starting slowly with general conversation, learning what things we may have in common and what the client enjoys most. Then we can talk about what sessions will look like with me before moving into information gathering and heavier topics.

I work very hard to build a rapport with clients from the first session so they become engaged. I believe that engagement rests with the therapist. It is my job to make the client feel heard and comfortable enough that they want to see me again to continue our work together.
