Profile
“I enjoy working with motivated and curious people who wish to explore their inner worlds in a warm, collaborative environment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My interest in the emotional lives of people began early in life when I found solace in journal writing to explore and understand my feelings. My own therapeutic journey inspired me to pursue this healing profession and education in my early 30s after spending my 20s doing various odd jobs, including writing, photography, and administrative work. As an older student and intern, I appreciated the rich opportunity to train in ERs and hospital outpatient settings as well as traditional therapy settings. Working with chronic pain patients motivated me to study and utilize wellness techniques of hypnosis, guided imagery, and meditation. The mind-body connection is quite powerful; people who are in pain, whether physically or emotionally, will demonstrate symptoms and they deserve to find help through good mental health care. Addiction treatment is a big interest of mine; I utilize harm reduction and 12-step models as therapeutic tools.
What should someone know about working with you?
When someone reaches out to me for a session, I provide a free 10-15 minute phone consultation. Therapeutic rapport is essential. The intake is a basic biopsychosocial about the client's life and presenting problems. I enjoy working with motivated and curious people who wish to explore their inner worlds in a warm, collaborative environment. The client is the expert on one's life and I provide supportive reflections and expert listening. Sometimes, I can give homework if it seems like a good idea.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I gravitate to continuing education courses and training that highlights treatment of addiction and trauma. There are pioneer healers, like Gabor Mate, who have brought fundamental changes to the world of addiction therapies. I find collaboration with a few trusted colleagues to be especially beneficial for myself as well as my clients.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
It's been quite interesting to do teletherapy. My clients have deepened their work with regular sessions. It has been more convenient for many clients, allowing them to avoid travel issues in order to make an appointment. I can also say the same for myself.
