What will I be doing during ouR session?
During the session, I will listen mindfully, non-judgmentally, and with empathy. I will provide comments as needed, reflecting back to you the patterns I would notice. I might also offer alternate ways to see the situations or concerns, and help you figure out ways to empower yourself. I might discuss how to change your perception, feelings, approach or behaviors. You set the pace, I will facilitate the process.
As your therapist, I might also give you "homework" to support your process or might lead you in mindfulness practice during the session.
Sometimes I might offer you to use expressive modalities when I notice that talking might not help as much. It is amazing how quickly your mind can process these images and work them through!
There are many modes that I may offer to use in your session, but the main one is responding to what you share with warmth, empathy, acceptance and an alternate point of view.
