Profile
“I have worked in outpatient settings where I was able to see clients across the lifespan and I realized that at any age the question of “Who am I?” can have a profound impact on the way we see and interact with the world around and within us.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
The first time I went to therapy, I was in my senior year of college. I had always been interested in what moves and motivates us as humans but I had never had anyone to guide me through the various struggles of life. From a young age, I was described as “sensitive” but that often came with other connotations (such as “too emotional” or “too dramatic”). Eventually, a therapist took the time to help me see that “sensitive” is not a bad word and that empathy is not a weakness. As it turns out, deciding to become a therapist was the natural progression of who I had always been deep down. What I needed was a safe space and the stabilizing presence of a therapist to help me see this. I have worked in outpatient settings where I was able to see clients across the lifespan and I realized that at any age the question of “Who am I?” can have a profound impact on the way we see and interact with the world around and within us.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work to establish a collaborative and creative partnership with you in order to help you achieve your personal goals. I believe in a client-focused, strengths-based, and holistic approach to therapy where we work together to identify and reduce the symptoms and causes of distress. I begin with a more traditional talk therapy style and as we get to know each other more deeply, I supplement the work with exercises from CBT, mindfulness, narrative, creative arts therapy, and whatever you and I decide together might be helpful to your unique needs.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
In order to stay present, I keep an eye on what my clients are talking about, including what they love to do, watch, see, or play. I also look for ways to enhance my knowledge of research and the work of other professionals, incorporating it all into treatment. Sometimes, this means watching a client's favorite TV show or joining TikTok. Specifically, I'm interested in learning about bibliotherapy, narrative therapy, and play therapy (even with adults). With the resurgence of games like D&D and the growing popularity of the superhero and fantasy genres, I believe that utilizing these pastimes can make therapy more accessible and allow for a strong normalization of mental health issues.
