“I make all efforts to learn about my client and their journey as I partner with them to help identify a more fluid and fulfilling sense of self.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have several years of experience working with a very diverse group of clients who have experienced a wide range of life issues, including depression, anxiety, and relationship and/or intimacy issues in various clinical settings. Those experiences have given me a wealth of knowledge that I both value and employ daily within my practice. While I am certified in cognitive behavioral therapy and motivational interviewing, my treatment approach is eclectic in nature. It would be my pleasure to journey through your life’s issues with you.
What should someone know about working with you?
I make all efforts to learn about my client and their journey as I partner with them to help identify a more fluid and fulfilling sense of self. My ideal client is motivated and practices implementing what is gained during their sessions outside of therapy.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe establishing a rapport, transparency, and a clear understanding of our roles in the therapeutic process will help assist clients in feeling safe and is essential to any successful therapeutic relationship. I am very intentional about understanding my clients, their experiences, and the intricate details about the things that make them who they are (including their specific cultural or inherited way of doing things). These core values are what I hold true in my therapeutic approach and practice.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
As with anything else in our ever-changing world, the mental health landscape must grow and evolve. I am truly excited about the opportunity to reach those who want therapy via telehealth, one of those evolving sources for mental health treatment. I believe that being able to access treatment from the comfort, security, and privacy of your own home may help reduce the stigma of mental health care in many communities as well as encourage others due to the sheer convenience.
