Profile
“Each and every one of us has the courage to face our pain, overcome obstacles, and lean into the anxiety that holds us back.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Listening to others and giving them space to share their stories has always reminded me that we as humans are more similar than we are different. Each and every one of us has the courage to face our pain, overcome obstacles, and lean into the anxiety that holds us back. I love witnessing such bravery and resilience and I consider it a privilege to have entered the counseling field early in life. You are not alone. You can make a different choice. You can put that boundary in place. Your needs matter. Your voice is needed and deserves to be heard.
What should someone know about working with you?
Everyone's journey is unique, so progress looks different for each person. I approach counseling from a relational perspective. This means I get to know you and we work together to bring about the most meaningful change in your life. For some clients, homework is helpful because they like to tangibly supplement therapy. Others are more insight-oriented and prefer to be asked questions that lead them to their own conclusions. The majority of my clients measure progress by seeing the desired change in the relationship with themselves or others.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
We spend the first 18 (or more) years of our life learning in certain relational environments; it's where we learn to walk, talk, and grow up. The emotional system creates an imprint on our future ways of relating to spouses, children, friends, coworkers, and ourselves. It doesn't define us but it can influence our choices as we navigate becoming authentic versions of ourselves. Training related to understanding this emotional climate and the subsequent relationship patterns inform my practice. I am currently training to become a certified family trauma professional. I specialize in individual, couples, and family relationships. In the same way we go to doctors for different specialties, it's important for counselors to work with other providers who can help offer a holistic approach to your care.
