“I have seen how invisibility, not being heard, and judgment impact mental health.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My ability to be compassionate, empathetic, and nonjudgmental have strengthened my awareness and my belief that going into this field of service was my calling. I have worked in various settings, including hospitals, public schools, and community mental health agencies. I believe that a good fit between provider and client is necessary to cultivating a strong therapeutic relationship. I have seen how invisibility, not being heard, and judgment impact mental health. My goal is to be part of the solution.
What should someone know about working with you?
I understand no two individuals are the same and I tailor our sessions to address challenges unique to you. Together, we will work to understand the root cause of your struggles. I strive to help you build tools and strategies for the patterns of behavior and thoughts that have impacted your life. My clients are insightful, motivated, and range in age from 18-65. They include working adults, college students, and those experiencing challenges in relationships, anxiety, depression, adjustments, and life stressors.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited that telehealth has become a more feasible option for clients. I find that clients being allowed to stay within the comfort of their own spaces and still access help is such a reward. Although there are risks and limitations that come with this option, something is better than nothing.
