“My warm but direct nature makes me a great fit for anyone who is ready to change their life or just live more peacefully.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I always knew I wanted to do something in psychology; the study of why we do what we do and who we are has always fascinated me. It has been my long-time passion to help people achieve their best quality of life as we only have one and life is short. I have been working in direct care for a decade with children and adults from all walks of life. My warm but direct nature makes me a great fit for anyone who is ready to change their life or just live more peacefully.
What should someone know about working with you?
Therapy is for you; I am here to provide you with a service. I love regular feedback and open communication to ensure you are getting what you need out of this experience. I regularly encourage work to continue in between sessions as results in real life are more important than a therapy session. I am hoping to work with those who are willing to put in the time and effort to do something to better their lives.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I love building my skill set through trainings and certifications. I recently became certified as a Perinatal Mental Health Counselor (PMH-C), and am working on new certifications related to fertility challenges, and loss. I am passionate about helping women, men, couples and families adapt to the challenges and joys related to conception and birth. I always keep my eyes and ears open for new ways to be a more skilled provider for the clients I serve.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited that the evolving mental health landscape is making care not only more accessible but less stigmatized.
