Chloe Lankshear, M.Ed, Ed.S
Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist #77835
I work with children, adolescents and adult individuals and couples. A lot of my clients initially come to me suffering from anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or relationship problems. I do my best work with clients who are motivated – this is the right time for them to come to therapy and they are willing to put in the effort to get the results they want. This doesn’t have to be all at once, instead it can be a gradual process and I am very respectful of each client’s pace. I completely understand why coming to therapy can be strange and daunting at first and I don’t expect all my clients to arrive at their first session delighted to be there and chomping on the bit to get started!
I value offering my clients a safe, comfortable and supportive space in which to step back from their everyday lives and focus on making the changes they want. I want my clients to feel like they can truly be themselves with me and not have to censor themselves for fear of what my reaction will be.
I obviously do not have all the answers, but I can promise you that I will listen attentively, be open to your story and your perspective and then will work hard to help you make the changes you want to make.
I draw from a variety of approaches, but I most frequently used Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with individuals and The Gottman Method with couples.
If you decide to see me, we will first do a telephone consultation and from there if we decide to work together, we will arrange an initial appointment. We will spend the first few sessions making sure I’ve got all the background to you and your circumstances and from there, I’ll put together a plan with your input and agreement. We will work together towards achieving your goals and I’ll invite your input and feedback throughout. This is your process after all. I want you to have a good experience from coming to therapy and I want you to feel that choosing me was the right decision for you.
