What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have worked in multiple settings and modalities, including group, individual, and couples counseling, while treating a variety of challenges, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, PTSD, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, grief, relationship issues, anger management, substance abuse, and professional and life coaching. I have worked with adults, adolescents, and older adults. I transitioned to nonprofit program management as my day job in 2016, and I currently oversee several community mental health programs. While nonprofit management and community health are rewarding, I find so much meaning via the more personalized connection and growth that therapy offers. I look forward to sharing that journey with you.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer an integrated approach that is tailored to meet your needs. Therapy is not a one-size-fits- all experience. I operate from a psychodynamic lens with the belief that our early life experiences shape the people we are today. I believe that our time together is valuable and that therapy is the ultimate form of self-care. My top priority is to help you feel better and succeed.
How do I know if therapy is for me?
If you are feeling nervous about starting therapy, I want you to imagine a place you could visit once a week for an hour that is yours and yours only. Imagine speaking freely without thinking or concern for another’s feelings. Imagine ending a session with your therapist feeling validated, supported, and intrigued by thought-provoking content regarding your own personal life. Imagine feeling motivated to work on yourself in between sessions and feeling like a better life is within reach.
