Profile
“Today, my practice focuses on you and how you can manage better!”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to starting my private practice, I worked as a social work director for 12+ years, but I changed paths because I really preferred more face-to-face time with my clients. I got so much more from my time counseling than from being in a management position. I worked for seven years after that as a homecare social worker and I saw firsthand how many people were suffering from mental health issues at home. That’s what really guided me to virtual therapy even before COVID! It allows me to reach people who would not have asked for help had virtual therapy not been an option. Plus, I get to help people who would reach out but are so busy taking care of others that their self-care ends up at the bottom of the pile. Today, my practice focuses on you and how you can manage better!
What should someone know about working with you?
In our first session, you can expect a thorough biopsychosocial in order to begin to understand where you are. Building rapport is very important to me so I do not push, especially in the first session. I’m very good at reading people by tone of voice, facial expressions, and body language. Most of all, I want you to feel comfortable and safe. You will find that I am a nonjudgmental, caring person. I do like to challenge clients sometimes with homework so that the work continues when you’re not speaking with me. However, it’s not a weekly thing; it needs to be fluid and not forced.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am super excited about the evolving mental health landscape! As I stated above, I was doing virtual mental health counseling before COVID and I really feel like I found my niche. People who would otherwise struggle to get help or who were too busy or overwhelmed to get help now can!
