“With my unique approach, I seek to investigate and break down your past experiences, understanding your unconscious patterns of thought and behavior.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I began working in the field several years ago. I started as a volunteer and created a poetry group for homeless men living in shelters. I have worked in a variety of programs and supportive services, including hospitals and mental health clinics. I moved on to counseling and coaching in a private setting a number of years ago. I love working with people and truly enjoy witnessing them shift their lives in meaningful ways while helping them find insight and clarity and supporting them to improve areas of their lives that bolster them. I believe helping people gain insight and understanding is synonymous with freedom……and freedom should be the goal of every human action.
What should someone know about working with you?
In my experience, everyone requires different medicine to thrive. I have found that some things people learn best from example and practice. Often, I will assign homework or make suggestions for things you can do outside of sessions. The process will start by painting a picture of your life in broad strokes. As we work together, we will find a place to drill down and discover more nuances of who you are. Together, we will find ways to help you thrive. Sometimes, this unfolds in conversations; sometimes, it unfolds by giving you concrete tasks to improve aspects of your mental patterning.
What makes you different from other therapists?
I strongly believe that we all possess a unique, authentic self that’s shining beneath the shoulds, woulds, and coulds of social expectations. Unearthing this true self and calibrating it with intentionality can bring forth a sense of liberation, confidence, and buoyancy. These powerful feelings overflow into every relationship in our lives.
Simply put, an event or repetitive behavior can cause us hurt and pain. This is the impetus for change that we use to unpack larger issues across our lives. We treat the cause, not just the effect, in order to create lasting change and improve your quality of life.
If we forget the password to our personal power, how do we recover it? With my unique approach, I seek to investigate and break down your past experiences, understanding your unconscious patterns of thought and behavior. We need to become aware of what we are doing in order to do something different.
I have worked as a licensed clinical social worker for several years, studying the human condition in myself, my family, and my clients. I am not married to any one style: I listen with a full heart, ask questions, and challenge you to step into the greatest version of you.
Your wound is probably not your fault, but your healing is your responsibility. Let’s do it together.
