What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Though I knew early on that I wanted to be in the field of psychology, I took a detour and obtained my master’s in philosophy. Studying philosophy afforded me the opportunity to learn and foster a variety of skills that I now use as a therapist. A desire to help people and a natural curiosity about the human psyche led me to become a therapist. Over the years, I have worked in various settings, including community mental health clinics, hospitals, and college wellness centers, all of which allowed me to work with a diverse array of clients. My time spent working closely with Esther Perel strengthened my skills as a couples therapist. Today, I enjoy working with young adults who are experiencing life transitions and couples who are seeking to strengthen their relationships.
What should someone know about working with you?
I take a conversational approach to therapy while allowing space for exploration. I will listen attentively while you’re sharing and express my curiosity by asking questions. I will provide feedback and gentle guidance in order to assist you in changing behaviors/beliefs that no longer serve your wellbeing. When appropriate, I will use the healing power of humor to bring lightness into the room.
What is the best part of being a therapist?
I find fulfillment working closely with a diverse array of clients and have a genuine curiosity about their lives. I am honored that I am allowed to witness their transformation and journey toward personal growth.
