Profile
“My approach is both client-centered and solution-focused, and I incorporate many other treatment modalities based on each client's needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I started my career fundraising for oncology research and patient aid, quickly realizing I wanted to work directly with patients and their caregivers. I enrolled at Pepperdine University to study clinical psychology and completed all 3,000 training hours in psycho-oncology. Today, I specialize in working with individuals coping with chronic or terminal illness as well as grief and loss. I hold a master’s in clinical psychology with an emphasis on marriage and family therapy (2014) and I am currently working toward a postgraduate certificate in thanatology from Hood College.
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach is both client-centered and solution-focused, and I incorporate many other treatment modalities based on each client's needs.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a lifelong student; I continuously attend training and graduate classes to hone my skills to improve the support I provide to my clients. I am currently working toward a certification in thanatology (the study of death and the practices associated with it, including the needs of the terminally ill and their families) and I plan to pursue certification through the Association for Death Education and Counseling once the coursework is completed.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I have always been fascinated by societies and cultures and their practices, which is why my education began in anthropology. My practice is inclusive of all cultures and identities, and I strive to understand my client's personal challenges as well as cultural experiences in order to provide appropriate client care.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I began providing therapy through video platforms in 2017 and haven't looked back! Telehealth has been proven to be just as effective as in-person therapy and it provides greater access to care for those who are physically limited or live in rural areas that do not have mental health resources.
