Profile
“I incorporate psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches in practice through a focus of helping clients cope with their experiences, express and understand themselves, and experience increased contentment in their lives.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My curiosity and desire to help others led me on the path to becoming a psychotherapist. After taking a course on psychoanalysis during my undergraduate studies, I knew I wanted to focus my training on psychoanalysis as it uniquely offered an understanding of how the unconscious can affect our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I incorporate psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approaches in practice through a focus of helping clients cope with their experiences, express and understand themselves, and experience increased contentment in their lives. I also integrate approaches from cognitive behavioral therapy, drawing attention to problematic ways of thinking that may be negatively affecting a client’s mood and then helping clients discover alternative perspectives as needed.
What should someone know about working with you?
Starting therapy for the first time or with a new therapist can be very stressful and overwhelming. In our first session, I will ask about your reasons for starting therapy and about your history and I will also be sensitive to the fact that there may be certain questions that are difficult to answer in the first session or at the beginning of therapy. You might not be certain you want to start therapy until after your first or first few sessions with a therapist and that’s okay! I am happy to talk about your uncertainties at the beginning and throughout our time together.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about the ongoing progress in how diversity is understood in the context of psychotherapy. I believe that identity and background pertaining to race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, religion, ability status, and socioeconomics are essential to account for understanding my client’s experience. In sessions, I aim to create a comfortable space in which clients can talk about how their identity as well as how our differences or sameness (e.g., relating to my being a white cisgender woman) affect their experiences.
