Profile
“I prefer a conversational or casual approach to therapy.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I began my career out of college on the business side of healthcare, working on accounts. I quickly realized that I wanted a career with a more personal connection and decided to begin my journey to becoming a psychotherapist. I started my spiritual journey by attending yoga school, where I expanded my knowledge about mindfulness. Shortly after yoga school, I enrolled in graduate school, eventually earning a master’s in psychology. I have worked at a behavioral health hospital and in private practice and have completed training in NLP, EMDR, focusing, mindfulness, and the Gottman Method.
What should someone know about working with you?
I prefer a conversational or casual approach to therapy. My intake process involves getting to know the client. I have a series of "regular" intake questions that I like to walk through but ultimately, I believe that success is achieved through defined goals, commitment, time, and the will to achieve a determined outcome. I look forward to tracking growth and progress with you through regular check-ins and assigned work.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I turn my training into fun events I get to attend. I usually travel somewhere and spend the weekend learning new things, meeting new people, and exploring. I am constantly reading books and when I get inspired by something, I look for training to attend. I believe in collaborating with other providers, as it expands my knowledge and network and allows me to refer a client to a specialist when my skill set is not a perfect fit for my client’s needs.
