Profile
“I am truly passionate about end-of-life care, and I feel it is a great privilege and honor to work with individuals and their families to improve quality of life while facing the many challenges associated with life-threatening illnesses.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My interest in social work goes back decades and comes from my own personal history, which led to one of my most meaningful instances of being involved in my community. I am truly passionate about end-of-life care, and I feel it is a great privilege and honor to work with individuals and their families to improve quality of life while facing the many challenges associated with life-threatening illnesses. My education coupled with my certifications and personal passion has helped me work with individuals who experience loss, illness, and addiction as well as older adults and/or those with older parents.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake consists of a full psychosocial assessment. I assign homework and worksheets as needed for an individualized treatment plan. Therapy is a working relationship and those who put in the work get the most out of treatment. I have worked with various populations in a variety of different settings and have experience in anxiety, depression, trauma/PTSD, spirituality, bereavement, grief and loss, isolation, loneliness, career counseling, alcohol/drug abuse, mood disorders, personality disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, anger management, motivational interviewing, low self-esteem, self-confidence, assertiveness, life changes, financial/budgeting, effective communication skills, coping skills, decision-making, problem-solving, couples counseling, individual counseling, and group counseling.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My own values consist of honesty, integrity, unconditional love, and the belief that every individual embodies strengths. I am dedicated to caring for you through the entire treatment process, from intake and treatment planning to progress monitoring, in order to assist in developing strong solutions. I utilize an integrative, holistic, multicultural, and person-centered approach in treatment and tailor therapy to your specific needs using evidence-based techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and solution-focused counseling. My goal is to create a warm, flexible, and nonjudgmental space to help you cope, heal, and find the solutions that work best for you.
