Profile
“I was intrigued to learn the ways in which I could engage others in healing with the use of compassion, empathy, and talk therapy.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was intrigued to learn the ways in which I could engage others in healing with the use of compassion, empathy, and talk therapy. My path to becoming a therapist began as a social worker with employee and member assistance programs specializing in domestic violence and violence in the workplace, substance abuse, and mental health services. I designed and provided services which helped workers and working parents cope with trauma, infertility, pediatric obesity, and chronic disease management. Helping workers, their families, and people who cared for others motivated me to help them resolve life challenges which prevented them from reaching their personal and professional goals. After 9/11, I served in community mental health clinics, providing therapeutic services to individuals in under-resourced and underserved communities.
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach is collaborative and participatory, acknowledging your expertise and knowledge about your body and experiences. Together, we define goals and progress, without judgment, maintaining dignity and achieving progressive and evolutionary success. The small a-ha revelation is as important as the big a-ha revelation and, most importantly, we embark on the journey of your healing together. Yes, sometimes you will have homework.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Continuing education, ongoing internalized learning, and building competencies are like food for my body and soul. To learn is to live and my sources of study include formal spaces such as academia, professional events, interdisciplinary peer relationships — especially social workers — and from people in their environments. My interests run the gamut of human experiences as they evolve in families and communities. Currently, I am completing a group therapy certification and have started psychoanalytic training with a focus on young children and adolescents. Key areas include faith and community mental health, COVID-19 recovery, and parental support, including child welfare, advocacy, human rights, racial equity, diversity, inclusion, and more.
