Profile
“I knew I wanted to be a therapist in high school; I had been through some challenges early in life and therapy helped me through them.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I knew I wanted to be a therapist in high school; I had been through some challenges early in life and therapy helped me through them. I worked in community mental health, which gave me experience with just about everything. I found that I most enjoyed working with people with trauma, anxiety, and depression, so those areas became my focus when I went into private practice. I am trained in cognitive behavioral therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
What should someone know about working with you?
I complete a thorough intake during the first session or two. I work with you to come up with treatment goals tailored to your specific needs. I do sometimes assign homework when I think it will help move progress along. I enjoy working with people from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a “continuing education junkie” and I try to take several quality courses per year. I am currently focused on becoming fully certified in EMDR by attending advanced EMDR trainings and participating in group and individual consultation specifically geared toward building my EMDR skills.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I love providing counseling online because it removes many of the barriers that people have to getting services. People can do therapy without having to sit in traffic or drive far away for the right therapist. I find that people are more comfortable being in their own environment.
