Profile
“I offer nonjudgmental guidance and support to assist clients in navigating challenges, addressing concerns, exploring strengths, and accomplishing goals.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I spent 12 years as a public safety dispatcher, literally answering the community’s calls for help. I wanted more than just to be there in the first moments of crisis; I wanted to follow through to the other side. I went back to school and obtained an MA in clinical mental health counseling. Since then, I have worked in various settings providing assessments, individual psychotherapy, group treatment, intensive outpatient treatment, and crisis management.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer nonjudgmental guidance and support to assist clients in navigating challenges, addressing concerns, exploring strengths, and accomplishing goals. I believe that every individual and situation is different and therefore utilize a variety of treatment modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, goal-oriented treatment, strengths-based approaches, mindfulness, and person-centered therapy.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I love telehealth. It provides a client with the ability to sit in their own home where they are most comfortable while discussing uncomfortable topics. Telehealth has provided clients access to more providers who can support them in making the changes they desire.
What else would you like clients to know about you?
There are endless options and possibilities when it comes to treatment and having the support to make small changes and try new things often leads to a profound difference in one’s quality of life. My goal as a counselor is to empower individuals to feel more clarity and power in making decisions that move them toward being the happiest and healthiest versions of themselves.
