Profile
“Our mental health is impacted by all that happens in the world around us, how we process and make sense of it, and how we cope with what challenges come our way.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have been in the social work field for about 15 years in various capacities (both on an individual and macro-level). I believe that improving community health takes a holistic approach. Our mental health is impacted by all that happens in the world around us, how we process and make sense of it, and how we cope with what challenges come our way. I am committed and invigorated by supporting individuals on their path to self-discovery, healing, and fulfillment.
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach is honest and straightforward and my aim is to support you in gaining insight. I find that awareness gives one choices and uncovering what one did not know about themselves through this process brings forth the power to change.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently enrolled in postgraduate certification programs. I am also actively engaged in additional training institutes with modalities that I like to incorporate into my practice, such as those offered at The Gottman Institute and Esther Perel's training sessions.
