Profile
“My work experiences help me be flexible when working with people, developing a teamwork mindset and learning how to adapt to constant change.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to therapy after many close family and friends described me as a good listener. I did my research, took some courses, and really enjoyed what I was learning. I have been a therapist ever since! My client-centered approach has helped me build rapport with clients and find longevity in the field. I have worked in a health center and group private practice, so I am familiar with working in large settings and smaller ones. My work experiences help me be flexible when working with people, developing a teamwork mindset and learning how to adapt to constant change.
What should someone know about working with you?
I primarily work with young adults and older adults. My intake process involves gathering an overview of the client’s concerns and previous therapy treatment to develop goals. I enjoy clients being in control of their journeys, so our treatment goals will be used to track progress.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently pursuing my doctorate degree in psychology. In addition, working at a health center provides me plenty of opportunities to attend workshops related to domestic violence, cognitive behavioral interventions, motivational interviewing, burnout, and more. Attending workshops allows me to stay current on new research and learn from other providers who specialize in those areas while ensuring my resources are current.
