Profile
“In addition to EMDR, I’ve also had training in CBT and other associated therapies.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I come from a family of social workers and those working in helping professions. I’ve worked in community agencies, schools, medical settings, and private group settings and have a passion for helping people. In addition to EMDR, I’ve also had training in CBT and other associated therapies. My telehealth training taught me how to provide you with a private virtual office where we can meet with confidence and ease. Over the years, these experiences have guided me in shaping a strong, well-versed practice that results in success by helping others in a variety of ways.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intakes are designed to allow time for getting to know each other; I’ll work with you to get your ideas about where you want to go and how to get you there. If you like an interactive approach, I can offer suggestions for easy activities in between appointments. I can also offer you outside resources that are simple to use. This time together gives you a chance to get your questions and concerns addressed. I believe the decision to engage in therapy is an important one; people and therapists are unique and it’s important to find the right comfort and fit.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I believe it is important to strengthen my skills and do so with continued training in telehealth, EMDR, CBT, and other complementary therapies. Although I believe that EMDR is a gold standard for treatment, I understand and appreciate the value of complementary therapies that support and provide a well-rounded experience.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
We are learning new ways of communicating with each other, maintaining family ties and friendships, and attending school, meetings, and health appointments through various media. As a result, therapy too is embracing a new way of working. People are adopting new attitudes about accessing therapy in the comfort and privacy of their own homes, eliminating travel and allowing for more freedom from interrupted home or work routines. It has become a new convenience.
