Profile
“I have found that patience and understanding, along with unconditional positive regard, have been the greatest tools of success with my clients.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My own life experience, struggles, and personal growth in therapy propelled me to pursue my degrees in psychology and counseling. I feel an innate connection to others and this compassion drives my work with my clients. I have worked in outpatient clinics and private practice, which has provided me with the well-rounded experience of working with clients from all walks of life. My goal is to help my clients achieve a better understanding of themselves and their world while empowering them to heal and grow.
What should someone know about working with you?
I use the intake session as a space to get to know the client, their story, and their goals for therapy. Equally as important, the intake session allows the client to know me and develop a better understanding of what our work together might look like moving forward. I believe the therapeutic process continues beyond our sessions together and I value the use of homework, which may take many different forms. Progress in therapy can help people achieve deeper insight, experience a closer connection to their sense of meaning and purpose, or initiate meaningful change in their lives. I have found that patience and understanding, along with unconditional positive regard, have been the greatest tools of success with my clients. They allow me to collaborate with my clients to navigate through their experience, explore and process difficult thoughts and emotions, and ultimately develop better ways of expressing themselves and managing life stressors.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am committed to seeking knowledge of the best therapeutic practices and the world events that lead many people to seek therapy. I am an avid reader of educational, psychological, and philosophical material and regularly utilize training opportunities. I also believe that the collaboration with my colleagues, peers, and clients consistently allows me to develop a deeper understanding of myself and others, which informs my practice.
