“I believe each client is the expert on their own life and I am simply guiding them to access their potential.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I used to be a teacher and I found that my students were going through things within their family that affected their learning. I wanted to help them more but I didn't know how. It was at that time that I was compelled to pursue a degree in marriage and family therapy. My own experiences as a wife and mother also motivated me to want to learn more about family dynamics and how couples and families function best.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am warm, caring, and empathetic. My intake process is laidback and informal and I will ensure you feel comfortable during this process. I believe each client is the expert on their own life and I am simply guiding them to access their potential. I love helping people with relationship and parenting issues. You will know you are making progress when you feel calm, peaceful, and more content in your life.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am most interested in the areas of parenting and relationships. I believe that there are always new things to learn to help me improve as a therapist. I am always open to learning and growing, both personally and professionally.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Many of my life experiences have made me a better therapist, as I am able to relate to my clients and guide them from personal experiences as well as professional ones. I am very open about my experiences with my clients if I feel it can benefit them. I believe we all learn from experiences, both good and bad.
