“I will work my hardest to make sure you make progress.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I come from a background of clinical research and best practices. My goal is to help individuals lead the life they want without feeling stuck and bogged down by their history or past emotional baggage. I like to think of it as going through your work bag to remove old receipts, change, broken chargers, and anything else that leads to disappointment so you can carry a much lighter load! I have personally experienced these struggles and changed my own life and path midway. That experience helps guide who I am today.
What should someone know about working with you?
I will work my hardest to make sure you make progress. I often assign out-of-session work. I enjoy working with clients who are tired of being unhappy and feeling bogged down. I work to help them achieve what they want. Whether this involves a relationship, a career path, or something else, I find a way to make it attainable.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
As a member of the LGBT community, I have a deep understanding of the pain and stress this can cause daily and how to overcome these.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Access to mental health has been the most exciting thing of late combined with the acceptance that so many more people need help than previously thought. These have worked together to destigmatize counseling.
