Profile
“I knew I always wanted to be in a helping profession but if I had to pick one reason I became a therapist, it would be my older brother and sister's struggles with severe mental illness.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I knew I always wanted to be in a helping profession but if I had to pick one reason I became a therapist, it would be my older brother and sister's struggles with severe mental illness. Now 20 plus years in, my own experiences have become part of the reason I keep going. I have worked in child agencies, nursing homes, schools, community mental health centers, homes, and private practice. I have had various training over the years in the areas of CBT, DBT, mindfulness, EMDR, brainspotting, brainspotting for children and adolescents, trauma-focused CBT, and others.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am a trauma therapist, so I am always assessing for that first. I utilize the ACE Questionnaire for adults and the CATS for kids during the intake process. Sometimes, I assign homework; it depends on the client and what we are working on.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I love the potential to help heal people from anywhere in the world.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I want to do research on racial trauma. I plan to do my dissertation on this in a couple of years.
