Profile
“While I am still open to working with all genders and ages, my focus is women's issues and empowerment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
By the age of 14, I knew I wanted to help people; I took a psychology class in high school and from there I was hooked! Neurological disorders, chemical imbalances, and understanding the brain and how it affects behaviors fascinated me. I majored in psychology for my undergrad and social work for my master’s. I have worked in government, nonprofit, private practice, and educational systems. After years of working with people from four-years-old to 107-years-old, I decided it was time to home in on one demographic. While I am still open to working with all genders and ages, my focus is women's issues and empowerment.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am very laid back yet direct in my approach; I will work just as hard as you are to help you meet your therapeutic goals but there is no high demand or pressure. I believe people move at different paces for different reasons. With that being said, I try to establish realistic goals. The first few sessions consist of me learning about you. This is your space to introduce yourself to me and present your struggles. Together, we will explore the best options to help you come out on the other end victorious.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I love learning new things and believe that this is super important in our ever-changing environment. I actively seek trainings, conferences, and other methods that are beneficial for me and my clients. I particularly love trainings on cultural competency, discrimination, and gender equality.
