Profile
“As a therapist, I find deep meaning in creating space for my clients to get curious about their lives and find new paths to their goals.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Becoming a therapist was a natural journey for me; I am an instinctive listener and caregiver who is curious about our shared human experience. I knew that I would enjoy a career that combined my passion for making meaningful connections with my inquisitive nature and thirst to continually learn and grow. As a therapist, I find deep meaning in creating space for my clients to get curious about their lives and find new paths to their goals. I also value being a part of a profession that continues to evolve and offer new opportunities for growth.
What should someone know about working with you?
We all struggle at some point in our lives; I believe struggle is part of the human experience. When we find ourselves struggling or feeling unprepared for life’s challenges, we can feel isolated and alone. My role is to normalize this human experience and find ways for clients to feel more empowered and confident in order to reach their goals. I consider my relationship with clients to be a collaborative partnership; I will help you tune out the external and internal expectations so you can connect with what really matters to you now. Together, we will explore your goals and how we can address the worry, anxiety, isolation, guilt, grief, or unhelpful patterns in life that are barriers to reaching your potential. I use an eclectic blend of approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy, to address your unique needs and learning style.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
Compassion is a core value for me, not only within the therapeutic space but across all areas of my life. I believe everyone deserves compassion for themselves and from others. With compassion comes understanding and the opportunity for a collaborative and trusting relationship between myself and my clients.
