Profile
“I especially enjoy working with teens, Generation Z, and the young adult population.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Since this is my first career, I’m able to take an open-minded approach to the versatility of my degree. Being able to work with diverse populations in an array of settings has really helped me in building my patience, flexibility, and work ethic. My work started in a school-based setting, transformed into foster care, and eventually led me to private practice. All of these experiences equally contributed to my passion for helping others and progressing in this profession.
What should someone know about working with you?
Being able to empathize and understand my clients’ needs is my number one priority. From the start, we work together to create a playbook that molds each client’s wants and needs. I do offer flexibility when it comes to our work and leave it up to the client whether or not they want to do work outside of our sessions. I especially enjoy working with teens, Generation Z, and the young adult population. My work is focused on ways to manage distress, reduce anxiety, and help modify destructive and unwanted thoughts.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I personally believe that honesty, trust, and motivation make up a great therapy session. Therapy takes work, and I want the client to always feel the connection between us, one based on trust, motivation, and the comfort of being in the room.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
It is very enlightening how mental health emerged from being just a concept to greatly impacting the overall medical field. Telehealth is one of the innovations that lets me reach (and help) a wide range of clients. Being flexible for my clients is a must for me, so making telehealth a more "normal" and comfortable method of therapy is a priority.
