What you can expect in our therapeutic session?
We’ll work with a combination of talking and experiential techniques. Typically, we’ll begin by talking about what’s going on for you so that we can understand it and uncover what’s keeping you stuck. Most of the time our session will look like talking and exploring through the hour. There may be times we begin or end with a mindfulness practice in addition to talking, or we may decide to shift into art therapy. Please Note: We can shape the session according to what your needs are.
What can I expect to get out of therapy?
Depending on the reasons you are seeking out therapy, what you can expect to get out of therapy differs. Generally, my clients are seeking clarity around a certain issue, relief from stress and anxiety, or need support and counsel about a current life situation. Whatever is going on for you, therapy can make it easier by providing you with a safe space to receive emotional support, learn tools to cope with difficulties, and build self-confidence.
What types of therapy do you offer?
I offer individual therapy to adolescents, and adults. Generally I offer therapy for stress management, anxiety, depression, anger management, self-esteem, trauma, issues impacting people of color, ethnic/racial/cultural identity exploration, life transitions (i.e. co-parenting, young professionals, breakups, divorce, career changes, relocations), aging, relationship issues and communication skills.
How long does it take to feel better?
This varies from person to person. Some people feel a sense of relief after the first session, while for others it may take multiple sessions to start feeling a shift.
How can I know if we are good match?
This is a great question… it’s important to feel comfortable and safe with your therapist. The best way to know if we are a match is by doing a free consultation so we can speak and get a feel for each other. Usually we can determine if we’d be a good match after one conversation.
