“I truly enjoy helping clients rewrite their stories and live lives with purpose.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As far as I can remember, I have always identified with being a helper. I have always enjoyed helping others, being of service to others, assisting others in identifying their strengths, and helping them understand how family systems function. One of my dreams was to serve the community I was raised in and, after exploring different industries, I landed in mental health, specifically obtaining my degree in marriage and family therapy. We are all a sum of our experiences and it begins with the family of origin. I truly enjoy helping clients rewrite their stories and live lives with purpose.
What should someone know about working with you?
I consider myself an eclectic therapist; I believe in client-centered treatment and tailor my clinical approach according to the client's needs. I use an attachment framework; in order to move forward, it is important to understand what shaped your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
To provide the best care for my clients, I consistently work on my own mental, emotional, and personal development to ensure that I show up as a full container. I regularly attend webinars and seminars, read peer-reviewed articles, and complete training to always stay up-to-date on research and adjust my framework as needed.
