Profile
“I have since made it my goal in life to try to understand those challenges, to meet people where they are, and to have empathy and compassion for each individual's journey in getting to this moment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I often say no one wakes up one day and just decides to be a social worker (or at least that has been my experience). My journey started when I was a teenager, volunteering at a summer camp for children with cancer and their families. I realized that there were people in the world with more complex challenges than I could comprehend. I have since made it my goal in life to try to understand those challenges, to meet people where they are, and to have empathy and compassion for each individual's journey in getting to this moment.
What should someone know about working with you?
An initial session is spent gaining a deeper understanding of what brings you to therapy at this point in time. This includes gathering relevant information from your past as well as identifying your goals for the future. Oftentimes, I will assign tasks for you to complete between sessions. These tasks are meant to bring deeper awareness into areas of your life for us to discuss further. I view progress as a reduction of distress in your daily life as well as a deeper understanding of your emotional experience and how this impacts your thoughts and actions.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Telehealth has greatly expanded access to mental health care. I know that physical limitation, anxiety, depression, transportation, and weather are just a few of the barriers many face in getting to an office. Telehealth removes those barriers so people have more consistent access to care. Beyond accessibility, telehealth offers individuals the ability to practice using new skills and tools in their own environment. In the past, I have worked with clients on getting more comfortable preparing foods by having our session take place while they make a meal in their kitchen. I have also worked with clients to find items in their home to use as grounding objects when they are feeling overwhelmed or anxious during and outside of sessions.
