Profile
“Together, we will identify issues of concern and I will provide you with support and insight into how to best find solutions, tailoring my approach to your needs.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My interest in becoming a therapist was born from a lifelong fascination with human behavior and a strong desire to be of service to others. I have worked as a therapist in private practice, nonprofit outpatient settings, educational settings, and residential settings for over a decade, serving a variety of individuals ranging from those with severe emotional disturbances to those with phase-of-life problems. Prior to completing my MS (and during), I spent over two decades working in the restaurant industry, which prepared me for becoming a therapist by teaching me how to relate to a wide variety of personalities and manage crises. As a result, I have a particular interest in providing support to those employed in hospitality.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work best with adults, adolescents, and couples who are motivated to engage in the therapeutic process. Together, we will identify issues of concern and I will provide you with support and insight into how to best find solutions, tailoring my approach to your needs. Some individuals are looking for ways to solve specific problems; others have a desire to explore internal processes in depth. Oftentimes when a specific issue is presented, it will reveal underlying causes, which we will examine together. I understand the value of building a rapport to help you feel at ease in sharing your thoughts and I provide a space free of judgment for you to express yourself and feel accepted, no matter your concerns.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
One of the things I appreciate most about the mental health field is the endless opportunity for continuing education and expanding my knowledge base. I am passionate about learning, sharing information, and collaborating with other professionals in order to provide the best care to people I work with.
