What happens in the first session?

I will review privacy and confidentiality policies and then I will ask a lot of questions at first to flush out what brings you here , what you hope to get out of the sessions and to identify goals.

What is therapy?

I  provide a safe and creative environment for  Adults, children, youth, couples and families. We work together  to identify concerns, 
enhance self understanding, and more importantly to enhance self acceptance; to recognize repetitive patterns that are harmful, to engage new ways of being in the world, and to head in the direction that matters to each of us. Therapy is about understanding, predicting, and changing behavior to manage the  many challenges and transitions encountered in life.
