The focus of my practice is on relationship and sexual issues. In a first phone call I answer any questions you may have about me or how I work, ask you a few questions about what is bringing you to call for services, and tell you what you can expect in a first couple of sessions. If my services sound like a good match for your needs at that point, then we discuss my fee and schedule an appointment.
In a first session, I typically try to stay solution-oriented so that you walk out of the first session with something new to do and so that you feel that the therapy is providing you with something of value right away. In the second session I typically review your personal history form and might also give you assessments to make sure that I understand the challenges you are facing. Then in the third or fourth session, I will bring in a draft of the treatment plan which we will collaboratively edit as necessary.
At the end of every session, we identify what steps you are going to take between sessions to keep the therapeutic progress moving. In some cases we also will identify a topic to bring up in the next session. This helps us hold the thread of our therapeutic conversation so that you know that we're not just covering the same ground over and over again.

More Info About My Practice
In my practice, I am dedicated to serving people with diverse backgrounds of all kinds. I am particularly informed about at working with clients with Indian heritage because I lived in India with families for a year. I also particularly enjoy serving clients with sexual diversity (whether that diversity is the focus of therapy or not).
My Therapy Focus
I love helping people with relationship and intimacy issues. I work with couples, individuals, and systems to help improve relationship satisfaction by stopping unproductive emotional cycles, improving communication skills, cultivating mutual empathy and compassion, and helping to create the relationship environment where intimacy can bloom.
It can be challenging to talk with a therapist about sexual issues. For that reason, I take any conversation about sexual issues at the client's pace. I maintain a professional atmosphere where we only talk at the level of detail required for me to understand the challenge and to offer suggestions for changes.
