Profile
“I blend my own life experiences and difficulties with a true compassion for others and a deep desire to provide empathy and understanding of their experiences.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have wanted to be a therapist since early adolescence when I was a peer mediator and immediately took a natural liking to actively listening, understanding, and helping others. I have been fascinated by the human mind and behaviors from a young age and I would now describe it as a passion. I blend my own life experiences and difficulties with a true compassion for others and a deep desire to provide empathy and understanding of their experiences. I have worked in an anxiety treatment center, a university counseling center, residential treatment centers for eating disorders, and in private practice for several years. I have specialized training in anxiety disorders and eating disorders and additionally have lots of experience working with relationship difficulties, low self-esteem, eating and body image concerns, perfectionism, and life adjustments and transitions.
What should someone know about working with you?
The main goal is to start building a trusting and collaborative relationship at a pace you’re comfortable with. I tend to ask specific questions (and some more general) to understand your journey thus far and make sense of what you’re wanting from therapy. Together, we will start to understand patterns and highlight any areas of concern. I like to give feedback about my understanding of your story, and I always welcome reactions to make sure I am on the right track. Together, we will build goals for therapy during the first session.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
One of my favorite things about being a therapist is that the learning never ends. I dedicate a large portion of my practice to training, reading, and consulting with other providers to stay on top of the latest research and expand my knowledge to give my clients the best possible care. I am currently pursuing further training in infertility and maternal mental health.
