GETTING STARTED WITH THERAPY
Are we a good fit?
Most people think about counseling for a long time before they start searching for a therapist. I know there is usually something - some crisis or difficulty - that pushed you to this moment of action.
While you may feel a sense of urgency, I want to make sure we are a good fit before we get started.
I am a pragmatic therapist – I like to start with a solution-focused approach to help you feel better as soon as possible. As we get to know each other, I may apply other important approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Interpersonal Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral-based skilled. If needed or if you desire, we can dive deeper into family systems and psychodynamic work. At every step, we are partners.
When you reach out, there are many things I consider before taking a new client. This may include things like our schedules, your insurance, or whether I think I can help you. Sometimes, it's none of the above, and my practice is just too full for new clients. In that case, I try to provide referrals.
Please know that I make every decision with care, because I know that when a person is ready for therapy - it's important to get the right fit!
