What to Expect

What can you expect in therapy?

In many ways, therapy is just a conversation between two (or more) people. It’s a comfortable and safe place for you to come as you are. While I offer guidance and, at times, structured interventions to enhance the therapeutic value of our work, you remain in charge as we work collaboratively.

In addition, therapy is unique in that the entire focus of our time is on you, your needs, and your goals. Unlike conversations with friends and family, which can be helpful, but may not be solely focused on your needs, therapy is truly a setting where you can explore your experiences, feelings, or whatever else may be on your mind without worrying about how it might impact others, and without any fear of judgement.

How can therapy help?

Whether you’re seeking a specific treatment modality such as EMDR, hypnotherapy, or traditional talk therapy, therapy can be a great option for a wide range of concerns. Some of my primary specialties include:

Do you work with other issues?

Yes. In addition to working with individuals within my primary specialty areas, I enjoy working with other presenting concerns when availability allows. Some of these additional areas include:

  • Coping skills
  • Depression
  • Family conflict
  • Grief
  • Men’s issues
  • LGBT+ concerns
  • Racial identity
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-esteem
  • Matters of faith and spirituality
  • Finding or regaining a sense of purpose or direction

Do you offer family or couple’s counseling?

Sometimes. Most often these services are offered in addition to individual therapy when exploring needs related to the above areas of focus, particularly adjusting to life with chronic health issues or when addressing trauma.
