Profile
“Together, we will explore what keeps you feeling on edge and insecure; we will make changes so you can truly decompress and feel ready to kick ass!”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Mental Health Counselor?
I help stressed-out millennials feel less overwhelmed, learn to relax, and feel confident. If you constantly add more to your already full plate and struggle to unwind or doubt yourself and question whether you know what's right for you, I can help. Together, we will explore what keeps you feeling on edge and insecure; we will make changes so you can truly decompress and feel ready to kick ass!
What should someone know about working with you?
My style offers compassion and encourages you to work through stuck areas to move you closer to the life you want. One of my main focuses is making sure you feel heard and understood to better tackle your concerns. I believe you're the expert in your life and expect you to take an active role in the process. A typical session can look like a combination of learning a new skill or concept, following up on an assignment, and giving you ample time to bring up anything currently going on. I make it a point to make sure that you get to decide the flow of the sessions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Education is one of my favorite parts of my job because I love learning about all things related to psychology and how to better help my clients. I sign up for webinars, attend conferences, take training, read the latest journal articles, and read relevant books. At times, I have to consciously stop myself from signing up for too many learning opportunities. I gravitate toward learning more about acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), compassion-focused therapy, mindfulness, anxiety, perfectionism, self-esteem, stress, and burnout. I'm a member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science and have a pulse check on updates on new tools and research studies related to ACT. I also highly value peer consultation and collaboration, which I currently do through the Teletherapist Network.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
Our values can serve as a compass and a north star guiding how we show up in our lives. That also applies to my work as a therapist. I've made it a point to get clear on how I want to show up and often rely on the following: Openness, authenticity, mindfulness, compassion, knowledge, growth, and creativity.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm most excited about the continued move toward destigmatizing mental health, which has encouraged more people to be open to the idea of therapy. Given my background, where it wasn't part of my upbringing, I understand how foreign it can be to consider starting therapy. I've seen the movement toward changing this, which has allowed more and more people to be comfortable seeking care.
