Let's find the answers together.
Sometimes we hit bumps in the road where our normal ways of moving forward just don't cut it; other times it helps to have a trained, objective perspective to talk to about your life. Wherever you fall on that spectrum (or even if you are skeptical about counseling), individual therapy is a safe place to focus on yourself and figure things out. In these sessions we will collaborate to establish goals together, find your path to achieving those goals, and solidify the growth that happens along the way.
I use a wide variety of methods, but primarily use the ACT, Narrative, and Existential models of therapy.
Relationships are hard, and romantic relationships can be the hardest. Sometimes something big happens that shakes your faith in the relationship, and sometimes you wake up one day and realize that you don't look at each other like you used to. The good news is that it does not have to stay that way! In couples therapy, we will take a look at your relationship, understand how you got where you are, process what each person needs, and give you the tools to create and maintain the relationship you want.
I make use of a combination of Gottman Method and EFT when working with couples.
Families are complicated, and it can be hard to talk about it when what you're facing is so personal. Whether your parent/child relationship is not where you want it to be or you just feel like something is missing in the family, family therapy can help each individual and the group as a whole to grow and become better prepared to face life's many challenges. Here the family will work together to establish a goal altogether and for each individual, understand each other better, and learn to communicate more clearly.
With families I use Solution-Focused, Attachment-Based, and Conjoint models of therapy.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
New situations (especially ones regarding relationships or mental health) can be weird, so if you're anything like me, you'd prefer to know what you're walking into. Here's a small example of what to expect at your first visit:
After scheduling an appointment you will receive an email providing the details about our meeting and a link to a confidential client portal. Once you make your profile there you can review my policies and fill out the intake paperwork that helps me get to know you a little better before we meet. This is all done online, so you don't have to bring any paperwork to our first meeting; that being said, if you'd prefer to use printed paperwork, we can work that out too! When you arrive for your first session all you need to bring is a form of payment (I currently charge $110/hour); I can take cash, card, or check, and can provide you with information for reimbursement for some insurances. I currently am only in network with Uprise Health.
I start the first session by going over some important policies, but then the majority of the time is spent with us getting to know each other, coming to an understanding of your goals, then discussing what we could work on to help you get there. We will also talk about pricing, how often we will meet, and how we will check in with progress over the course of our time together. As the sessions go on and the therapy relationship grows, we will work together to create the growth that you want to see by processing your experience, identifying useful skills, and helping you take ownership as the author of your story.
