Profile
“My listening skills and patient demeanor allow me to build a rapport with clients in a natural and organic manner.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Coming from a small town in Pennsylvania, I decided that I would move to New York after graduating, as I wanted to work with others of various backgrounds and experiences. Working with others and assisting them in their own successes has always been my passion. I feel that my personality allows me to engage with you genuinely, and much of my training is in trauma-informed care and harm reduction. My listening skills and patient demeanor allow me to build a rapport with clients in a natural and organic manner. My focus has been on harm reduction in relation to substance use, which I have found can also be utilized in other areas of life as well.
What should someone know about working with you?
Upon conducting our initial intake, I will ask what you hope to gain from our work together. You can expect a therapist who will provide an individualized plan based on the goals that you identify as most important to you. I will provide you with things to consider for our next session and ask that you remain open to what is not working for you currently so we can work on ways to better the outcomes that you are wanting. I work on the dimensions of wellness and will challenge and encourage you throughout our work together.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe that my upbringing has helped shape the work that I do today, as I was given the foundation of being empathetic and caring toward others. I know that family comes in different forms and raising a family is not without hardship. Staying healthy and focused on a positive path can be hard in the cultural climate we are living in. At times, I believe we simply need to be heard in a safe and nonjudgmental space. I have worked closely with families that have battled homelessness, mental health, and substance use, understanding that traumatic events can happen no matter what our walk of life might be.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
When I think about mental health and providing telehealth therapy, I am excited by the ability to provide support even if we can’t be in an office space. I believe we are all adaptable and have shown that by overcoming whatever crisis we’ve faced. I am most excited that mental health is being destigmatized and that we are hearing the message that mental health is just as important as physical health. My hope is that we can all be secure in knowing when we need to reach out for support.
