I first meet with each client to get to know them and determine what their goals are.
Together we come up with a plan and determine which form of treatment best suits them. I offer three different forms of treatment to help people on their healing journey.
Individual Psychotherapy: This involves meeting with the client, on average, once a week. We first set our goals for our work together and then I recommend which therapeutic modalities I believe would be best for them. The frequency and length of treatment varies depending upon the client and what their goals are. I provide a supportive, non-judgemental environment where we can work through present day issues as well as process issues from the past, depending upon each client’s wishes and life circumstances.
Intensives: This type of therapy is typically best suited for clients who want to work through past hardships and traumas. The structure of these intensives varies from client to client but typically involves meeting for multiple days in a row for extended-length sessions. Many people find it difficult to do trauma work only once a week because it prolongs the recovery process. Intensives allow for people to work through a greater amount of emotional material in a compact period of time. If follow-up psychotherapy is necessary after intensive work, either weekly psychotherapy with me can occur or a referral to another therapist in the community may take place.
Retreats: This form of treatment is also best suited for clients who want to work through past hardships and traumas and want to do it in the supportive environment of others who can relate to their difficulties. Due to COVID 19 retreats are currently not taking place. As restrictions loosen in the future, more information regarding my retreats will be located on this website.
