“I will work to aid you in understanding the connection among your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have had a desire to help others from a young age. When I started college, I fell in love with psychology and developed a passion for helping others improve their mental health. I pride myself on showing friends and family members empathy, compassion, and understanding, which has aided me in providing the best care to everyone I work with. I have experience working with adolescents in an outpatient clinic and I have experience working with young adults through private practice. Throughout my years in the field, I have worked with individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions, social interactions, and various other difficulties.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe that the foundation of a good therapeutic relationship is trust. My first goal is to build rapport with you and create an environment where you feel comfortable sharing and expressing your feelings. I often use a cognitive behavioral approach but therapy is a collaborative process and I do my best to tailor sessions to meet your needs. I will work to aid you in understanding the connection among your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Throughout sessions, you can expect to focus on these three areas and learn various coping and cognitive skills to aid in your progress.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
As the mental health landscape continues to evolve, I have been most excited about the opportunity to provide telehealth services. I feel that access is often a barrier to receiving care and the ability to offer services via a telehealth platform increases access for various individuals. I enjoy telehealth as I am able to provide care to anyone in the state of New York. Seeking help can be difficult for various reasons, and I feel that being able to get that help in the comfort and privacy of your own home is a huge positive. Telehealth services can help break down the stigma of counseling and aid in normalizing mental health treatment.
