“Before I begin with any client, I make certain they are aware that their comfort and needs are the primary focuses in treatment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I believe everyone should have someone they can talk to about life's most difficult issues or the simple ones. That's what I am here for; I’m someone who listens and helps you work through whatever challenges life brings. I spent my entire adolescent and young adult life trying to help people identify and solve their problems in very real and practical ways. This passion and drive to understand and help people led me on a path to gain insight on how to treat individuals professionally through the best understanding of mental health possible.
What should someone know about working with you?
Before I begin with any client, I make certain they are aware that their comfort and needs are the primary focuses in treatment. I will always do my best to make sure that the environment demonstrates this. I believe there is no single approach that fits for every person; each individual is unique, and their therapy and counseling should reflect their needs and problems. When I work with clients, I make certain that we work together and attempt to find the best possible avenue for success.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Psychotherapy and mental health are still historically young and have enormous potential for continued understanding and development. As a provider of psychotherapy, it is of utmost importance to make certain that I am regularly updating and understanding the progression of mental health and its treatment modalities. I spend countless hours each week reading various studies and updated theories on therapy in order to make certain that I am knowledgeable in every avenue of possible treatment.
