Profile
“Clients have told me that they like my laidback and nonjudgmental style, but they also appreciate that I am active and engaged.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always known that I am a very emotionally-attuned person; my whole life, I have been immersed in the arts and music and deeply interested in what drives people and makes them tick. I have come to realize that being an emotionally sensitive person is a quality that can be used to help others. Early in my career, I worked as a musician and a journalist. After helping a couple of friends through some life crises (divorce and health issues), I realized that I had a gift for communication and felt that I could use this strength as a way to be of service to others. This realization aligned with my desire to have a career that affected a positive influence within my community.
What should someone know about working with you?
As a therapist, I try to put the client at ease and make them feel safe and supported. Clients have told me that they like my laidback and nonjudgmental style, but they also appreciate that I am active and engaged. I may suggest action plans, assign homework, or ask the client to journal on specific topics or themes in order to keep the exploration alive. Meeting the client where they are is imperative, and once we have mutually agreed on what areas we should explore, I like to engage in this process collaboratively.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My personal path of self-discovery was greatly informed by trying to understand my complicated family upbringing, which I believe gave me a unique lens that contributed to how I understand others and empathize with their feelings and perspectives. This empathic viewpoint is connected to my wish to help others connect with the most essential parts of themselves.
