Profile
“Much of my practice has been with survivors of trauma and with clients living with depression, anxiety, and interpersonal conflict as well as those managing issues related to self-esteem, sexuality, and identity.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to this profession and continue to work within it because of the field’s continued investment in the potential of individuals, couples, families, and communities. Much of my practice has been with survivors of trauma and with clients living with depression, anxiety, and interpersonal conflict as well as those managing issues related to self-esteem, sexuality, and identity. My educational and professional background have granted me access to specialized training in cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal psychotherapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and child-parent psychotherapy. That being said, I am loyal to the client’s needs rather than a specific treatment model and often draw from a number of modalities to provide the most suitable care. Concepts of mindfulness and body-based interventions are routinely incorporated when clinically indicated to support symptom remission.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process is geared toward helping us both determine whether we are a good fit. Together, we will assess your strengths and areas of need and look at how we might enhance your quality of life through targeted interventions. I often assign homework to clients who have the time to complete it as a way to maximize progress and extend treatment beyond the clinical hour.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As a treatment provider, I firmly believe in continuing to expand my expertise to better serve my clients. I regularly participate in training opportunities to hone my skills and am interested in learning more about EMDR therapy, meditation, and yoga practice as well as other movement-based therapies.
