Profile
“I'm very personable with a bubbly personality and I bring so much light and fun into my sessions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As a child, I experienced a very difficult situation that caused trauma and a lot of emotional distress in my life. After going to therapy for many years, I knew that what I wanted in life was to be a helping hand for children and women. I have made it my life purpose to help children and women heal, gain confidence, and become empowered toward living a life full of purpose. I want to give back what I was given as a child and guide clients in finding peace and happiness.
What should someone know about working with you?
One of my favorite things to tell my clients is that I'm a human diary. In a diary, you write down your thoughts, you write down your feelings about things you don't want to bring to light, and you make sure you keep this diary in a very safe place for no one to find. That's what I am to all of my clients: Their human diary. I prioritize providing my clients a safe and trusting environment. I'm very personable with a bubbly personality and I bring so much light and fun into my sessions. With me, clients can freely express themselves, feel heard, laugh, and have fun.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As a therapist, I am always learning. I'm always interested in learning new skills and look forward to attending training and/or workshops to increase my knowledge and provide the best service I can for my clients.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Society is becoming more aware of mental health and making it a priority. I know we have a long way to go, but I am extremely hopeful that many great things will evolve in the mental health field, not only for the consumer but for the mental health professional as well.
