Profile
“My hard earned resilience and empathy that comes from growing through difficult situations ensures my clients are afforded compassion and respect while they navigate the rollercoaster their lives are moving through today.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have lived through my own struggles with family, attachment, divorce, and loss and these experiences helped shape my desire to pursue social work and help others. My hard earned resilience and empathy that comes from growing through difficult situations ensures my clients are afforded compassion and respect while they navigate the rollercoaster their lives are moving through today.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am solution-oriented and goal-directed in order to assist those who have difficulty organizing their thoughts, feelings, and actions. I take my cues from each individual client and base our sessions on whatever we need to focus on to achieve desired outcomes. Together, we will tackle any negative patterns that keep you from living your potential. I use a varied approach with different modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness practices to address your unique issues.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am very curious about human behavior and research that helps us understand why we do what we do (both positive and negative behaviors). I love learning about helpful approaches that show us a better way to communicate and interact with one another to improve our outlook and provide hope for a more connected, meaningful future. I stay updated on new ideas and approaches while keeping the required continuing education credits current.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I am excited to continue connecting with clients using technology in order to remove roadblocks to treatment (such as time and travel constraints). I am also looking forward to utilizing techniques like mindfulness, deep breathing, exercise, and journaling to empower clients to use what they already have to take control of their feelings and move forward in a healthy manner.
