Profile
“I consider the therapist-client relationship as important as any part of the therapeutic process; I seek to provide nonjudgmental and unconditional support to my clients in order to help challenge their internal doubt, self-criticism, and shame.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have worked in a variety of therapeutic settings, including a crisis center, an LGBT community center, outpatient substance abuse treatment, and private practice. I feel each environment has provided me insight into and familiarity with different populations and their unique needs. However, they also helped me appreciate the common experiences and struggles many of us share regardless of our backgrounds. I draw upon these experiences and bring them into my work with each individual based on his/her/their specific situation.
What should someone know about working with you?
I consider the therapist-client relationship as important as any part of the therapeutic process; I seek to provide nonjudgmental and unconditional support to my clients in order to help challenge their internal doubt, self-criticism, and shame. To help foster a healthy relationship, I often check in to ask how we are doing and how we might do better. Based on our collaboration, I may recommend some simple assignments or exercises to try in between sessions to build upon and better inform our work. A core tenet of my philosophy is that the relationship itself can be a great source of healing.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Telehealth provides a degree of accessibility that allows me to work with people I would otherwise be unable to see in person. Additionally, the recent hardships and changes of an uncertain world have brought many people to seek help with a therapist. I am excited to see newcomers considering therapy who may not have done so under different circumstances. It's a unique opportunity to help people understand the importance of mental health and prioritizing self-care.
