Profile
“I enjoy getting to know people and learning what parts of their lives have shaped them to be who they are today.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
While working with various populations in different arenas of my life, I began to recognize the need and voids people often have. I was a single parent for a long time when I was younger and those hard times motivated me and propelled me to educate myself. I know how hard it is to feel alone and be your own cheerleader. Those times in my life became my path to being a therapist.
What should someone know about working with you?
I enjoy getting to know people and learning what parts of their lives have shaped them to be who they are today. I do assign homework and believe journaling the process throughout therapy can be a key element toward healing. I go at the individual’s pace and provide the space for them to come as they are without passing judgment or bias.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I love learning and I am constantly taking training to be as efficient as possible.
