What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I’ve always been interested in other people’s journeys. I began my undergraduate degree in nursing. In just two short semesters, I realized that nursing school was not for me. I began to think about other professions where I could help people heal. Social work seemed like the perfect fit, and I haven’t looked back since. I am now a licensed master social worker. Each day, I continue to learn; I take many postgraduate courses so that I can expand my knowledge and keep up with the latest education in my field of work. Some of these courses have focused on DBT, mindfulness, anxiousness, and self-esteem in young adults.

What should someone know about working with you?
When I first meet you, I like to learn about what brings you to therapy and what goals you would like to achieve. I’d also like to hear if this is your first time in therapy. If it is not, I want to know about the things you liked and didn’t like in the past to ensure this therapy experience is positive for you. Once we begin, I like to develop steps collaboratively that you can work on to attain your goals.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Teletherapy has allowed therapy to become so much more accessible and enabled taking care of our minds and body to become a priority for so many. I think it’s a beautiful thing to be open about mental health. Teletherapy has invited so many more people into this great community of advocating for your needs and helping others no matter where you are.
