Once you have made the decision to enter counseling, our first meeting will generally last between an hour and an hour and a half to complete an initial assessment. You can expect me to ask about your childhood experiences, medical history, current relationships, mood, treatment history, and other major life domains. What you share is completely confidential. My approach to counseling is evidence based and client-centered. I provide both brief and long-term therapy. The length of treatment varies based on the client. My work is guided by my belief that an authentic caring relationship and a space of nonjudgement are the most essential pieces of therapy.
