Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest things that we will ever do.

What To Expect At Your First Visit

 Therapy is a process of self-discovery and growth.  At your first session, we'll discuss confidentiality and your goals.  You'll have an opportunity to talk about what brings you into therapy now. I'll ask questions to get a fuller picture of your context and the systems contributing to your issue.  In follow up sessions we start examining what factors are keeping you stuck, introduce skills and tools that will assist you and explore new endings to your story.   Along the way we'll stay mindful of your goals, celebrate successes, and adjust as needed.
