Your First Appointment
The initial appointment is spent reviewing your information and beginning the process of establishing our collaborative trusting relationship. Feeling awkward, uneasy, reluctant, anxious, or emotional in the first session is very common! This is the place where you can shed whatever you’ve been carrying to “hold it together” in your daily life. I am here to see you for who you are and support you as you work through past and present issues into a happier and healthier version of yourself. This process takes time and will involve various therapeutic methods depending on your situation. Along the way, there are likely to be challenging and painful moments, but those who stick it through usually look back with gratitude. Acknowledge this courageous path that you have chosen and know that you have it within you to heal!
“Some changes look negative on the surface but you will soon realize that space is being created in your life for something new to emerge.”
