“Working with clients in private practice is my calling in life; it fulfills me and I absolutely love what I do.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I knew I had an interest in psychology since my middle school years. I was always curious about why people did the things they did. I followed my curiosity throughout the years and this brought me right to where I am today. Working with clients in private practice is my calling in life; it fulfills me and I absolutely love what I do.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer a psychodynamic approach to therapy. I meet clients where they are and let them lead the work. I believe the work will always go just where it needs to and that individuals move at different paces that makes sense to them. I feel it is critical that clients experience their progress as their own, so that they can actualize the power they have over their lives. I am creative when it comes to the therapeutic process. I will give homework as I see fit and offer an array of different therapeutic modalities as appropriate.
How does the therapeutic work you do align with your own life?
One of the many reasons I love the work as much as I do is because of the reciprocity in the therapeutic process. As a therapist on my own journey to personal growth, I bring my own realizations to the work, allowing them to inspire the therapeutic process. There are moments in the work when I am helping a client work toward something that I realize I want to work toward. My work with clients propels me to keep pushing and keep growing. This is how I stay grounded in knowing how hard growth actually is, allowing me to relate to the struggles my clients are having in my own way. I appreciate the relationships I cultivate with clients and feel a deep sense of gratitude to be a part of their beautiful journeys.
