Profile
“I feel it's important to get to know who you are so that we can focus on your strengths and build confidence.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist was driven by wanting to help people unpack their emotional baggage and uncover new pathways. I find comfort in knowing that I have the ability to assist in someone's healing process. Over the years, I have worked in various settings, including hospital, outpatient, and community-based organizations. My current time is spent working with individuals who suffer from PTSD and addiction. I am trained to help individuals utilize their own resources to build on their strengths and meet their immediate goals.
What should someone know about working with you?
I focus on building a rapport so that clients can feel completely comfortable sharing their feelings. I feel it's important to get to know who you are so that we can focus on your strengths and build confidence. Because therapy involves a collaborative approach, we work together to build a therapeutic partnership that includes psychoeducation and positive change.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am so excited about having the platform to communicate through telehealth. It allows the opportunity to communicate as if you were in person. This is crucial for balancing your self-care routine with your busy schedule.
