ALL ABOUT THERAPY
My treatment philosophy is to help empower clients to do their best and develop skills to cope with their main concern(s), through empathy and support.
I utilize evidence-based approaches unique to each individual, to help guide them toward healing. I offer individual, couples' and family counseling sessions. In therapy, we will together develop a personalized plan to help guide our sessions.
During our first session, we complete a biopsychosocial assessment, looking at all areas of development and life. We discuss if there is a diagnosis, and together develop a treatment plan, including goals for therapy and frequency of sessions. For minors, parents are welcome at any session. Typically, I complete a check-in with parent and child at each session, have time alone (if comfortable) with the child, and a check-out with parent and child at end of session. For new moms, babies are welcome to join your session if childcare is a barrier to you receiving help.
Telehealth services are available, some insurance plans will cover these services.
