Profile
“Practicing as a psychotherapist is a wonderful opportunity for me to be true to the values I have developed over the course of my life.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Practicing as a psychotherapist is a wonderful opportunity for me to be true to the values I have developed over the course of my life. Compassion, empathy, authenticity, and respect for all human beings are important pillars for me and I bring these qualities to my interactions with people I support as a psychotherapist.
What should someone know about working with you?
Each person is unique and, therefore, so is each course of psychotherapy. Often, the beginning stage of psychotherapy involves the creation of a safe and supportive space free of judgment. Where we go from there depends on what arises organically in the sessions. As an example, we might address internal conflicts (e.g., part of you wants one thing and part of you wants something else), look at communication difficulties in interpersonal relationships, or develop concrete strategies for managing emotions more effectively. The most profound positive results are achieved when one is willing to commit to the therapeutic process consistently while integrating what is learned into everyday life.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Continuing education is important to me so I can improve and better support the people I work with. Over the years, I have completed a number of continuing education workshops and courses with organizations such as the Gestalt Center for Psychotherapy, Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy, and the International Association for the Advancement of Gestalt Therapy. At present, I’m enrolled in a four-year postgraduate program with Gestalt Associates for Psychotherapy.
