Profile
“Progress is determined by decreased occurrence of symptoms, decreased intensity of symptoms, increased ability to implement skills independently, and observed improvements by both therapist and client.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Growing up in a family with several members in helping professions, it seemed natural for me to pursue a career along this path. My mother and I have been in practice together for over 25 years. Her career as a therapist was quite influential during my high school and college years. I am board-certified to work with children, adolescents, and their families and I enjoy working with the residents and families at two local long-term care facilities. I have extensive training and experience working with clients who have anxiety, depression, self-esteem challenges, parenting struggles, and behavioral challenges. This has all helped me to develop a therapeutic approach that is designed to be unique to each client.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process is engaging and casual where clients are encouraged to ask questions related to their specific treatment plan in order to establish a solid therapeutic relationship over time. Progress is determined by decreased occurrence of symptoms, decreased intensity of symptoms, increased ability to implement skills independently, and observed improvements by both therapist and client. Homework may be assigned at times, although it is not a staple of my work with clients. I enjoy working with clients who are committed to their goals and to creating the kind of change that they would like to see in their lives.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
As mental health becomes a larger part of our national conversation, I am excited and eager to see the stigma associated with seeking help and guidance finally get eliminated. With the implementation of telehealth, I am hopeful that those individuals who may have been hesitant to begin therapy will feel less fearful and intimidated. The recent research and evolving therapies for working with clients who have experienced trauma is also of great interest to me.
