Profile
“Social work is a hugely rewarding career and I am most passionate about my psychotherapy work and my ability to show my clients their inner beauty and value.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Building a trusting and nonjudgmental relationship with my clients is my priority. My career in social work has involved psychotherapy, working in the foster care system, leadership roles in community-based organizations, and diversity and inclusion training and facilitation. Social work is a hugely rewarding career and I am most passionate about my psychotherapy work and my ability to show my clients their inner beauty and value.
What should someone know about working with you?
My counseling style is warm, empathic, and client-centered. I have worked with clients of all ages, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, and cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I believe we all deserve to feel seen and heard. An important part of my practice is providing a space to affirm racial, cultural, gender, sexual, and socioeconomic identities. I believe in setting goals with my clients and focussing on achievement and growth. I strive for all of my clients to develop genuine self-love.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Psychoeducation is one of the more central pieces of my work with clients. I believe that when clients understand why their bodies and minds respond to certain events, they can take better care of their mental health. Through training and continued education, I remain active in discussions on research and development in a variety of specializations, including depression, anxiety, and panic attack management.
