Profile
“Charlie Chaplin once said, "To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it!" I'm here to facilitate that process with you.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As corny as it sounds, being a therapist feels like a calling to me. Most social workers (myself included) have lived experiences that motivated us to join this profession. I am honored to be able to walk alongside folks as they explore their fears, process old hurts, and begin to create new avenues for joy in their lives. Charlie Chaplin once said, "To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it!" I'm here to facilitate that process with you.
What should someone know about working with you?
My practice honors intersectional identities, and I’ve worked especially close with individuals from LGBTQ+, Black, and Latinx communities. I specialize in the treatment of mood disorders, trauma, ADHD, and family conflict. While I tailor my interventions to each client, I integrate components of CBT, DBT, and mindfulness into my approach. I also use a psychodynamic lens to conceptualize patterns of behaviors. I am not here to treat you like a diagnosis; I am here to treat you like a unique individual with a broad range of thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I'm certainly a lifelong learner and am constantly signing up for new workshops and trainings around special interests or less familiar treatment topics. The availability of online courses has resulted in me attending even more trainings than usual.
