What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As far back as I can remember, I have wanted to make people feel better; I'm an empath and this guided my professional journey toward becoming a therapist right from the start. I've always known this was what I wanted to do, and I find immense contentment and peace in what I do every day. I have had experience working in every possible therapy setting, from in-home therapy in Southern California to a busy inner city child and youth mental health clinic in Rochester, New York. Since 2020, I have been fully virtual. I have worked with children, families, couples, and individuals but at this time, I am only accepting clients looking for individual therapy. My approach is strengths-based cognitive behavioral therapy from a family systems lens. I am trained as a certified clinical trauma professional and am always actively educating myself to continue to improve upon my clinical skills.
What should someone know about working with you?
I provide individual therapy using a HIPAA-compliant telehealth platform. The intake session includes a review of your current obstacles and reasons for seeking therapy. We will also work on identifying a clear focus for therapy. I am open to any questions you might have about this process or how therapy will look. I will also review practice policies and ask that you share some background information to give me a better idea of how I can help.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Telehealth has allowed for so many to receive quality therapy services; I am grateful to be able to provide therapy to my clients wherever they are! I have also had the unique opportunity to meet some of my clients’ kids, pets, and roommates, something that would have never happened in a traditional therapy session!
