Profile
“I love working with women experiencing anxiety and relationship difficulties because I’ve been there; I get it on a level I couldn’t without living through it myself, and I have faith that you have the resilience and guts to make it out.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?
I love working with women experiencing anxiety and relationship difficulties because I’ve been there; I get it on a level I couldn’t without living through it myself, and I have faith that you have the resilience and guts to make it out. I’m no different from the clients I see; like everyone else, I’m human. I’ve been through both wonderful and difficult experiences that have shaped who I am and how I help. My life experiences are what led me to become the therapist I am today. I am kind but straightforward and supportive but willing to challenge you. I never get tired of seeing clients figure things out and begin to transform their lives. The most rewarding thing about being a therapist is giving hope when people feel hopeless.
What should someone know about working with you?
Sessions with me usually look a lot more like a deep conversation than you simply talking. Talking can be very therapeutic (and I promise there will be lots of that!), but I’m someone who will really get in there and be dynamic with you. We’ll brainstorm, bat around ideas, and collaborate on how to help you reach your goals. Therapy isn’t one-size-fits-all; every woman is different and what works for one might not work for another. I tailor sessions to best meet your needs as a unique individual, pulling from my training and experience in methods like hypnosis, EMDR, CBT, mindfulness, parent-child psychotherapy, Circle of Security parenting, adoption competency, and more. I’m a women’s therapist who will help you learn how to manage symptoms and responses, look at situations differently so you can feel differently about them, and learn skills to communicate and create boundaries more effectively.
How do your own core values shape your approach to care?
I can best answer this question by listing my beliefs about therapy. I believe emotions heal when they are witnessed and validated; therapy works when both of us are committed to your healing; sometimes small steps in the right direction end up being the biggest steps in the end; and once you can understand the root of an issue, you can determine how to move forward.
