“I offer clients the opportunity to explore what they want, need, and deserve.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have been passionate about helping individuals take care of their mental health since I can remember. When I was faced with my first big decision (deciding my major in college), I immediately chose psychology, as I was interested in learning more about mental health. I value the path it's taken me on so far and thoroughly enjoy helping others find their path to healing. I have experience in various settings, such as nonprofit, substance use treatment, inpatient, and private practice outpatient treatment. I have completed training in EMDR and DBT.
What should someone know about working with you?
I offer clients the opportunity to explore what they want, need, and deserve. I will guide you in making decisions and changes for the better and encourage you to reflect on what is not working. Together, we can improve your overall life satisfaction. The intake assessment can take 2-3 sessions. After we complete the "getting to know you” phase, we will discuss areas of concern that you would like to work on. We will work together to decide the healthiest and most effective plan of action.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As a mental health therapist, I am required to continue learning competencies in my profession. As things are always changing, I have to learn how to adapt. I thoroughly enjoy learning new strategies and keeping up with the mental health trends to assist my clients. I seek out opportunities to continue my professional growth. I am interested in continuing to learn more about EMDR and treating couples.
