“I have the skills and training to help you lead a more content, fulfilling and functional life.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I come from a long line of mental health professionals. For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by human behavior and the study of mental health. A career in clinical social work was the clear and obvious choice for me. Before opening my private practice, I worked in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, and agencies. Becoming certified as a clinical trauma professional has given me the ability to offer many additional ways of healing to my clients.
What should someone know about working with you?
Private practice is all I do! My treatment style draws on many different methods depending on your specific needs. During the first few sessions, we will review your history thoroughly and comprehensively to make sure I get to know you well. Then, together we will outline goals and create a personalized treatment plan. Throughout your course of treatment, I will be checking in with you periodically to evaluate if we are on track toward meeting your goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
There is always more to learn and I am always looking to learn more! In my spare time, I can be found taking webinars and reading books on mental health, particularly in the areas of trauma, anxiety, depression, OCD, and psychopharmacology. However, my clients have been my best teachers; they have taught me more than any book or webinar could!
