Profile
“I love working with women experiencing motherhood stress, relationship difficulties, and anxiety 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 motherhood stress, relationship difficulties, and anxiety 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. My path to becoming a therapist was simply going through life’s struggles and learning a ton along the way. Being a therapist allows me to pass on the knowledge I learned.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am NOT a therapist who simply asks, “How does that make you feel?” and then stays quiet for the rest of the session. My goal is to allow you to speak but to also respectfully challenge you and provide you with different strategies and changes in perspective. Whatever you need to talk about is fair game in sessions with me. After years in this field, believe me when I say that I have seen and heard it all, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Working with women who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety and/or relationship issues is my passion. My goal is to help you to feel understood and validated. I do this by listening to you very carefully and asking questions to help us figure out the root cause of your distress. Once we can identify the root of the issue, we can figure out how to help you move forward and figure out a plan for facing life’s challenges head-on. Many people come to me and tell me that they don’t know where to start or how to explain what’s been going on, and that is totally okay; let the therapist worry about all of that. Let’s work together and figure it out.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Telehealth is amazing and research is showing that a virtual therapy session has the same efficacy as an in-person therapy session. The best part about telehealth is that you don’t waste your time commuting to sessions, there's no need to change out of your pajamas if you don't want to, and you can literally schedule therapy during your lunch break. Telehealth is making therapy more accessible than ever.
