What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Having dealt with difficult situations and phases during my childhood and early adulthood, I found myself eager to learn ways to help others. Combining my own journey of healing, my warm and genuine nature, and my extensive clinical experience and training allows me to create a comfortable, safe, and successful environment for you. Providing psychotherapeutic intervention to clients is extremely rewarding, which is the reason I have dedicated years of time and energy to ensure I am implementing the most effective researched-based interventions to best help you heal.
What should someone know about working with you?
My practice specializes in anxiety, panic disorder, trauma (simple and complex), and NPD abuse recovery. My goal in therapy is to help you reach goals that you've set; you are the expert of your life, and I am the guide and facilitator. Treatment, progress, and healing can look extremely different for each client, and I take the time to listen with empathy, hear your concerns, and work together with you to create a plan for healing. My treatment typically is attachment-based while utilizing EMDR to help strengthen neural pathways and desensitize and reprocess. Finding the right client/therapist fit is imperative, and I am open to answering any questions that you may have.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently an EMDR-trained provider seeking EMDRIA certification. I attend training related to trauma (simple and complex), neuropsychology, and NPD recovery. Additionally, I practice and attend mindfulness meditations with a concentration on mindfulness-based stress reduction, which I tend to include in treatment.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am a passionate mental health advocate who hopes to continue to normalize therapy and mental health issues. Therapy is not just for severe, diagnosed mental health disorders, and asking for help and scheduling with a therapist shows courage, bravery, and hope. Telehealth has made it so folks with impossible work schedules, limited transportation, or those who may be lacking motivation to follow through with in-person sessions can still have access to therapeutic treatment, which is why I offer both in-person and telehealth services.
