What to Expect
What is therapy like?
For many, the thought of therapy can be very stressful. We understand the unknown can be anxiety provoking. We will begin in an initial assessment of the aspects of your life that are challenging and the goals you would like to get from therapy. We then spent time getting to know you. We can talk about whatever is on your mind, you are in control of the discussion and content. As we begin to see ways to help you get closer to your goals we will assist you in these aspects through educating, appropriate tools and guidance on perspectives and narratives. Therapy is not an easy process, it can be hard to bring up painful experiences. It can get harder before it gets better. However, our hope and goals is to help the healing process and guide you to a better ability to function in your inner and outer worlds. We believe this a collective process, you know yourself better than anyone else.
What type of therapy do you use?
We use an eclectic combination of many different tools and theories. We incorporate a holistic approach, for looking at the individual as a WHOLE. This includes emotional, intellectual, physical, social and spiritual health. We meet the client with what they need the most. Among our many tools, we use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, psychoeducation, Gottman Couples, and Emotionally Focused Systems to help with the current suffering and symptoms. We believe in the mind-body connection and honoring what our brain has had to do to protect us through out our lives. We will help you redirect and reroute for a calmer mind and body. In the larger picture we incorporate psychodynamic and existential to heal the past wounds and find purpose in the persons life. We listen to the goals of each client and tailor the treatment to what the client is most looking for to build their most fulfilling life.
Do you offer Virtual and in-person session options?
We offer both virtual and in-person. Virtual services are easy to access and HIPAA compliant. We suggest a reliable internet connection and computer with camera and microphone. Please ensure you have a quiet space for a confidential conversation.
