Profile
“My belief is that therapy can offer a safe and collaborative space that ultimately leads to a greater sense of meaning, growth, and fulfillment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My path has included training in various clinical settings, such as hospitals, outpatient addiction treatment centers, and private practice. I have also completed additional training in mindfulness and creative arts. I have experienced the benefits of personal growth in my own therapy as well and believe strongly that every good therapist is also a fellow traveler on their own journey of self-discovery. My belief is that therapy can offer a safe and collaborative space that ultimately leads to a greater sense of meaning, growth, and fulfillment.
What should someone know about working with you?
I think every person’s story and style is unique, which is why I prefer an integrative approach to therapy, utilizing and blending different frameworks including mindfulness, DBT, CBT, creative arts, psychodynamics, and existential modalities. My philosophy is also based on a wellness model, which means I don’t focus too heavily on pathology or diagnoses. I value the mindset that we are all striving to reach our own potential in different ways and all possess unique strengths as well as areas for growth.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I think ongoing training as a clinician is incredibly important as it allows us to stay on top of the latest research and ideas. Some of my own additional training includes the areas of mindfulness, DBT, and trauma-informed care.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I think one of the most beneficial trends in mental health is how much more openly it is discussed, destigmatizing outdated ideas of what it means to seek therapy. With the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on all of us, it’s become increasingly clear that everyone can benefit from paying more attention to optimizing and prioritizing mental health.
