How I Work With Students

Therapy with me involves genuine, respectful listening and active engagement that is empowering, pragmatic and enlivening. First, we’ll assess what your needs are and determine what services will best meet your needs. If we determine that working together is the best course of action, we’ll then explore which approach may be most effective within our short term counseling model. We’ll develop your vision of what you want, and identify realistic steps to get there. This may involve combined approaches from Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Interpersonal Process Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, creative expressive therapies, or others. Like a co-navigator, I support you along the way. I look forward to hearing from you and welcome your questions, thoughts, and feedback.
