“My experience of overcoming substance use myself has informed my “yes we can” approach; I believe that no matter how far you have fallen, you can always get back up with outside help.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Working in publishing and writing profiles tipped me off to my growing interest in hearing people’s truths. I could never get enough of honest disclosure of personal details, desires, fears, insecurities, or dreams. I wanted to pursue people’s stories full-time and I decided to get my master’s in social work and become a psychotherapist.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am an interactive therapist, eager to provide tools, insights, and homework for those who want more tangible change. My first sessions include an intake interview to get your history and goals and lay the foundation of our work together going forward. I work with individuals and especially enjoy helping people overcome substance use issues. I also specialize in couples work and teach mindful communication techniques that often thrill clients with rapid, noticeable change in each other and their relationship.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Core values have helped shape my approach to therapy. My experience of overcoming substance use myself has informed my “yes we can” approach; I believe that no matter how far you have fallen, you can always get back up with outside help. What we cannot do alone we can accomplish with the guidance of other human beings. It’s an honor and a privilege to be the hand that reaches out to pull another up. No matter what you want and what you dream of having or being, it’s within reach if you surrender to help getting there.
What can I expect from working with you?
What if you could completely transform your life with a little help? What if you could move beyond what's blocking you right now? What if you could have healthier, happier relationships? Or kick addiction to the curb? What if I told you I can help you do JUST THAT? Would you want to chat?
