What would your clients and colleagues say is your therapist superpower?
 
Imagine finally untangling a messy knot of thoughts and feelings. That’s what clients say I help them do. We work together to unpack their worries, find a fresh perspective, and discover the amazing resilience they already have inside. It’s like being their cheerleader and confidant, all rolled into one.
 
 
What does a typical session with you look like?
 
There isn’t a one-size-fits-all therapy session, but here’s a general idea of what you might expect:
 
Warm welcome: We’ll start by catching up. How has your week been? Anything specific you’d like to focus on today?
 
Safe space for you: This is your time to talk freely and openly, without judgment. I’m here to listen intently and ask questions that help you explore your thoughts and feelings.
 
Collaboration: We’ll work together to understand your challenges and goals. Sometimes, it’s about processing past experiences, while other times, it’s developing coping mechanisms for current situations.
 
New perspectives: I might offer different ways to look at things, suggest helpful tools or exercises, or gently challenge some thinking patterns. But ultimately, the solutions come from you.
 
Action plan: We might brainstorm strategies you can try outside of therapy to manage difficult emotions or situations.
 
Wrap-up: We’ll summarize key points and discuss any homework or goals for the next session.
 
Remember, this is just a framework. Every session is unique and depends on your specific needs and what feels most helpful at that moment.
 
 
Is there an example from your daily life where you practice what you preach?
 
Absolutely! Motherhood throws its own curveballs, and I definitely practice what I preach. Here’s an example:
 
Just the other day, my little one was having a meltdown in the grocery store. It can be tempting to get frustrated or try to “fix” things quickly. But I took a deep breath, used mindfulness techniques I teach my clients (like focusing on my breath and acknowledging my own feelings), and gave my child some space to express themselves. It wasn’t easy, but eventually, the calm came back, and we were both able to navigate the situation. It’s a constant reminder that self-care and emotional regulation are crucial for both moms and their little ones!

Therapy Styles

Short Term (Solution-focused, etc.) 
Ideal for those who are coming in with a specific problem they’d like to address and gain clarity on. Typically, short term therapies are present focused and do not dive deep into your past.

Structured
Structured therapies are goal and progress oriented. Therapists may incorporate psychoeducation and a specific “curriculum.” In order to stay on track, therapists may provide worksheets and homework.

Insight-oriented (Psychodynamic, Existential, etc.) 
Exploring the past and making connections to present issues can help clients gain insight. Getting to the root of the issue and finding deeper self-awareness can help with long-term change.

Non-directive (Humanistic, Person-centered, etc.)
Going with the flow and seeing where it leads.

Behavioral (CBT, DBT, etc.)
Focuses on changing potentially unhealthy or self-destructive behaviors by addressing problematic thought patterns and specific providing coping skills.

Trauma Focused (EMDR, TF-CBT, etc.)
Recognizing the connection between trauma experiences and your emotional and behavioral responses, trauma focused therapy seeks to help you heal from traumas.
