We’re a team in this therapeutic process and you’re in the driver’s seat. As we get to know each other and your needs, I will plan how to support you during each session and will ask for feedback from you. If you’re questioning your progress or our session content, I want you to feel comfortable to let me know. It is important to me that you feel our sessions are beneficial.
I view counseling as a collaboration between you and I, where I have the honor of guiding you on your journey. Together we will focus on solutions while processing your emotions in a safe and supported way.
Sessions are tailored to each individual so it’s hard to generalize what your sessions will look like before we meet, but in general, we will talk about goals, what you’ve tried on your own, your past experiences, and your family of origin if applicable.
Note, the stereotypical image of lying on a couch during counseling very likely will not apply (but if that’s your thing, you’re certainly welcome to lie on the couch!). I offer sessions in a traditional office where you can get comfy however you’d like, or in your home if that’s easier for you (this is often a nice option for new moms who find it tough to get out of the house or who want to use nap time for themselves without hiring a babysitter). I also offer Walk+Talk therapy, where we go for a walk during your session (also great for new moms with babies). This is a great option for those who want to capitalize on all the natural feel-good impacts of moving our bodies and being in nature. See the Walk+Talk page for more information.
