Profile
“My clientbase has historically been centered around busy professionals and modern families who are trying to overcome obstacles, symptoms, and stress in order to lead a more balanced and peaceful life.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I always knew I would end up in a helping profession. I considered medicine and education for a while but ultimately my interest in human behavior, attachment, and emotions led me to the field of social work. I chose to study social work because of the endless possibilities in how one can use their social work education. I have worked as a social worker in the criminal justice field, as a medical social worker in the healthcare field, as a school social worker in the education field, and currently in my own private practice. Although each of these experiences taught me different skills, they all increased my passion for being an agent of change.
What should someone know about working with you?
My clientbase has historically been centered around busy professionals and modern families who are trying to overcome obstacles, symptoms, and stress in order to lead a more balanced and peaceful life. Progress comes from the ability to reflect on your emotions, behaviors, and thought patterns, notice difficulties, and develop small changes over time.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
The one thing I am most excited about in the evolving landscape of mental health is the increased awareness of mental health and the reduced stigma around help-seeking behaviors. The silver lining around recent challenges include increased access to help via telehealth services, mainstream conversations around symptoms and disorders, and the normalizing of mental health treatment. We still have a long way to go but more people are reaching out for help and I believe that benefits society as a whole.
