Profile
“My core values include acceptance, treating others with respect, and highlighting a person's strengths.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My own life experiences brought me into the field of social work. I was determined to figure out how to help others and understand my own experiences. I started working at a young age with people with developmental disabilities and realized how rewarding that work was. Throughout my education and career, I have had the opportunity to work with clients and their families, and I have witnessed how therapy can change the way a person views their challenges. I enjoy the collaborative approach that therapy offers and helping someone in a time of need is an honor.
What should someone know about working with you?
The intake process consists of discussing what brought the client to seek therapy as well as conducting necessary assessments. Throughout the intake process, which naturally happens over the first and second session, I am able to determine a good starting point. Activities to complete in between sessions can be assigned if they’re a good fit for the goals outlined during the intake process.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values include acceptance, treating others with respect, and highlighting a person's strengths. No matter the challenges one may face, character strengths are present in all of us and there is always an opportunity to change and find hope.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
People are in need of support, and telehealth allows me to reach more people than I could if I offered in-person therapy only. I love that people can choose the environment they feel most comfortable with and receive support.
