Profile
“I evaluate the client to make sure there is progress being made even if it’s at a slow pace.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have a master’s in school counseling. After earning this, I returned to school to become a clinician.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake form includes the basic information to get to know the problem and goals the client is facing. I evaluate the client to make sure there is progress being made even if it’s at a slow pace. I do assign feasible work to discuss during therapy and for personal growth. I enjoy working with clients who are committed to therapy.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continue learning different approaches and materials to present to my clients.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I tend to incorporate respect, empathy, and motivation in my approach, which helps clients accept their progress and accept themselves.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited that mental health is becoming more accessible for clients.
