At the initial session you’ll share the concerns that brought you to my office and we’ll discuss what you hope to get out of therapy. For therapy to be successful, it’s important that you and I are a good match, thus I encourage you to ask questions and express any concerns you may have about me and my style as a therapist.
I draw from years of acquired knowledge, self-exploration, and clinical experience. I will support you at looking at the issues at hand by listening, validating, offering empathy, and asking clarifying questions that will help you go deeper. We’ll examine thoughts, beliefs, and parts of your personality that have developed patterns, typically in your childhood, to help you survive, and question how and if they serve you today. We will explore your feelings as emotions hold information that can lead to new insights and new possibilities.
I am a Level II AEDP therapist and this is my main modality, thus I conduct therapy through the lens of attachment and neuroscience.
