Profile
“I like to meet people where they are and provide safe spaces where they can take pauses from all the noise around them to fully be present and in tune with their own needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always had an interest in and passion for mental health and a fascination with how the brain works. After my two kids were out of preschool, I decided to go for my master’s degree in 2017 and graduated in December 2019 from Fairfield University with my degree in marriage and family therapy. I became a fully licensed professional specializing in working with children and families in June of 2021.
What should someone know about working with you?
I love working with people from all walks of life and helping to facilitate insight into their thought processes and experiences during major life transitions. I enjoy learning about and utilizing the interests and strengths of my clients to help them move forward and continue building momentum in their lives. I like to meet people where they are and provide safe spaces where they can take pauses from all the noise around them to fully be present and in tune with their own needs.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am an avid reader and communicator. I love any form of self-expression and artistry and am constantly searching for new ways to communicate and express my innermost thoughts and feelings. I value self-care, relaxation, research, philosophy, science, social justice, and vow to never stop learning or ever feel like an “expert” on anything. There is always something else to learn and grow from and I have so many interests that I don’t think I will ever not be a student of the world. My main interest right now is building up my private practice and finding more tools to add to my repertoire to best help my clients in need. I have had training in play therapy, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), structural family therapy, Adlerian play therapy, internal family systems, narrative therapy, and bibliotherapy, and I am still learning and pursuing my interests and passions.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values allow me to be fully present and in tune with my clients. I strive to build a strong foundational therapeutic relationship that is based on unconditional positive regard, trust, honesty, and collaborative thought.
