Once we’ve scheduled your first appointment, we will also schedule your Initial Intensive. This will kickstart your transformation by providing an in-depth understanding of the model we will use to move you to a higher level of healing.
As you gain momentum and confidence, you will begin to see an increase in your self-esteem and watch your life transform before your eyes.
We will use the new understandings of mental and emotional blocks discovered in the Initial Intensive to inform our individual sessions better as you work to practice your new skills.
You can add group therapy or an Advanced Intensive into your regimen if time is of the essence and you enjoyed the intensive format.
We will titrate our sessions as you progress and eventually work into a maintenance phase. As you continue to meet your goals, we are slowly phasing out of treatment, ensuring you won’t become codependent on treatment and can get on with enjoying your freshly transformed life.
Therapy is an investment. Therefore, finding the right fit with your therapist is critical. Just like I encourage clients to interview a few therapists along their process, I also look for certain qualities in my clients to ensure we will work well together. If we aren’t a match, no worries; I am always happy to pass along a referral.
You also probably grew up in a home where your parents did their best, and for whatever reason, they couldn’t see you and tend to you the way you deserved. When trying to connect with people, you might be nervous because they are “normal,” and for some reason, you feel like you aren’t. And what even is a healthy relationship?
You are ready to make a change but aren’t sure how to get there. You are probably a creative entrepreneur, a CEO at a Fortune 500 company, and/or a mother seeking a deeper connection with your children than the one you had growing up. Your success is important to you, and you put your whole heart into whatever you set your mind to.
You view this work as an investment in yourself and the following generation. You are tenacious, driven, ready to work, and yearn for deep, long-lasting change. While interviewing therapists, you are listening for someone who knows who they are, the light and the dark, because you are also seeking to know these depths of yourself deep down. You are expecting to work with someone who knows what they are doing. You also may have worked with other therapists in the past but found that there wasn’t any change happening. You’re seeking to be challenged and transformed, not just seeking a conversation with a friendly face.

Together we will peek at how childhood influences your self-esteem, connection with your partner, parenting style, and/or confidence in exploring new ways of being, etc. Focusing on the issue's root ensures that your investment is time and money well spent. It’s important to note that this is not the same as blaming your caregivers for whatever is going on today.
While you didn’t get here on your own, I totally believe it’s your responsibility to do the work and make a change. I understand you are busy and have plenty of other things to spend your money on, so let’s ensure the change we bring forth will last. We all have an origin story. Let’s look at yours so we can write a new chapter infused with transformation and freedom.
I use Pia Mellody’s model of Developmental Immaturity as a map to help you get access to the tools you need to balance your present and heal your inner child so you can finish unfinished business from childhood. Also. In case you’re into this sort of thing. I understand my clients through a psychodynamic lens and utilize person-centered, experiential, and cognitive-behavioral techniques to support clients in making active progress in treatment.
In the session, we will tend not only to your mind (unlearning any unhealthy beliefs you may have stored away) but also restore your connection to your body. Trauma lives in your body, begging to be seen and heard. I believe in trusting your body to lead us where we need to go toward healing. Our bodies are profoundly sacred teachers; connecting to their wisdom will instill confidence to carry you forward far beyond our time together.
