Profile
“By utilizing the tools that CBT provides and the insight that comes from a psychodynamic understanding of how our upbringing impacts our adult lives, we find the path that enables clients to more clearly see where they want to go and how to get there.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Since college where I majored in psychology, I knew that I wanted to work in the helping field. This began by working with children on the autism spectrum and then counseling at-risk adolescents in a high school setting. While pursuing a degree in social work, my interests evolved into working with adults and better understanding their challenges, such as anxiety, depression, difficulties in the workplace, and relationship struggles. It is so gratifying to see people evolve through the work we do together and move into more successful and happier lives.
What should someone know about working with you?
Through a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy and psychodynamic techniques, we come to understand what is working and what is getting in the way. By utilizing the tools that CBT provides and the insight that comes from a psychodynamic understanding of how our upbringing impacts our adult lives, we find the path that enables clients to more clearly see where they want to go and how to get there.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently attending the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy, which gives me the tools to better listen to my clients and understand their needs.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
It is my firm belief that clients ultimately do the heavy lifting in helping themselves. While I can guide them through with careful listening and appropriate questioning, it is with their dedication and hard work that they find the answers to a more fulfilling life.
