What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have wanted to be a social worker ever since I can remember. What drew me to my area of focus of adult adoptees is that I too am adopted. Although I grew up in an amazing family, there were moments that I still felt lost. This experience helps me empathize with individuals who have also been touched by adoption.
What should someone know about working with you?
During the intake session, we will discuss what brought you to therapy, take a complete history, and work with you on identifying the issues you want to work on in order to develop a customized treatment plan. You’ll know you’re making progress when you’re able to challenge thoughts that before were difficult to challenge or change.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
The theoretical approach I like to use in therapy is cognitive behavioral therapy. I am currently working toward getting certified in cognitive behavioral therapy through the Beck Institute. Collaboration with other providers helps me learn about other therapeutic approaches.
