Profile
“Being able to connect with others and allowing them to be heard and understood is really something that has always spoken to me and why I chose to do what I do.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
The person I am today is a product of my upbringing and the people who I have interacted with throughout my life. I would like to be part of other people's journeys, helping them become the best versions of themselves. Being able to connect with others and allowing them to be heard and understood is really something that has always spoken to me and why I chose to do what I do.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am relatable to people on all levels, in tune with what makes teens tick, appreciative of the struggles of parents, and able to build strong relationships with those who are in the transitioning stages of life. I am intelligent, witty (at least I think so), and I know that I am also on a journey trying to become the best version of myself. The intake process is ongoing and things are constantly evolving throughout the course of therapy. Progress is in the eyes of the client, as therapy is a very personal experience and growth looks different for everyone. I enjoy clients who want to be in therapy. Not everyone knows what they want out of therapy and that’s okay as long as they are open to the idea of change. Change can be scary but I hope to make the idea of change a little less scary.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited to be part of the current mental health landscape because things are starting to shift. The stigma surrounding mental health is constantly evolving and people are more open to coming to therapy. As the acceptance grows, the providers do as well and there are so many more options out there. Nowadays, someone can really find a therapist who caters to a person's specific wants and needs.
