What type of therapy do you do?
Lasting change happens when have a deeper understanding of our suffering. When you understand who you are, what you need, and what you want out of life then you can create a life you like. The context of the therapy relationship creates a safe space for you to make the changes you want to live a more fulfilled life.
What can I expect the first session?
Psychotherapy is relationship based, so we have to meet in person and get to know one another to know how best to help you. Our first meeting we talk about the frame for the treatment. We establish roles and expectations prior to talking about what brought you in. Before our time is up we process the session and assess how to best help you feel better.
