Profile
“I am fascinated by the mind-body connection and the emerging work on the powerful interplay between mental and physical health.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My longtime friends from childhood remind me that I was always the "good listener" of our group. This, as well the early influences (like Fred Rogers and Carl Rogers) shaping how I view myself in relation to others, led me to my passion for helping and my path to becoming a psychologist.
What should someone know about working with you?
I'm a big believer in an eclectic and flexible approach tailored to fit unique needs. My intake process will involve a thorough history in order to understand what these unique needs are and to clarify the goals for our work together. I also believe in therapy as a collaboration. We will decide what progress looks and feels like and will use this to benchmark our success.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
A core value for me is the great significance of feeling empowered. When the pandemic took hold, there was a call for mental health providers to volunteer and I joined a hotline with a call volume that had exploded with people in crisis. Witnessing, on a massive scale, how soothing and affirming empowerment is for a caller reaching out for help as a show of strength, self-care, and resourcefulness reinforced my belief in its importance to therapy.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am fascinated by the mind-body connection and the emerging work on the powerful interplay between mental and physical health. I'm excited by how mindfulness techniques have been shown in research to make lasting, healing changes on a physiological level for those suffering from anxiety, trauma, chronic pain, and more. Iā€™m also excited that mindfulness is gradually becoming a part of our popular cultural awareness.
