Profile
“If my clients were describing me, I think they would say I am personable, down-to-earth, and easy to talk to.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I started my career as a licensed addiction counselor and continued to build my career in clinical mental health to best serve individuals struggling with co-occurring disorders. I was motivated to grow professionally and offer more comprehensive care based on my experience and belief that many individuals develop unhealthy coping skills as a means to cope with deeper rooted issues. I believe good people can sometimes make bad choices but do deserve a fresh start. I have worked in outpatient settings, inpatient psychiatry, and in a program that works with veterans, offering a comprehensive, whole-person approach to meet the complexities of those who reach out for help.
What should someone know about working with you?
If my clients were describing me, I think they would say I am personable, down-to-earth, and easy to talk to. Sometimes, it is hard to share how we are feeling with those closest to us. Finding someone you can trust to listen without judgement who isn’t tied to your day-to-day life is one of the many benefits of choosing therapy. I offer an individualized treatment approach. In the initial sessions, I build rapport and get an understanding of who you are, what experiences you have endured, and what your goal is. Together, we will openly discuss and develop a plan to work toward short-term goals to help meet your long-term desired outcome.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I was blessed to grow up in a family that wasn't perfect; this allowed me to grow up with the understanding that people endure a variety of challenges and difficulties and best of all, can overcome them. Whether you are struggling with a chronic condition, family conflict, divorce, loss of a loved one, self-esteem, trauma, or feeling stagnant with day-to-day life, I have my own experiences that help convey an empathetic approach and an understanding of difficult life circumstances. I believe my upbringing contributes to my ability to provide a sincere, nonjudgmental approach with an optimistic outlook on recovery, my ability to implement positive changes, and my ability to improve your quality of life regardless of the presenting issue.
