Profile
“I like to say, “Lousy therapists help you feel better; good therapists help you get better.””
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I grew up in a culture that values introspection and personal growth. I was introduced to modern psychology through personal experience. My first formal job was teaching fourth grade. As my familiarity and interest in psychology grew, I decided I wanted to make psychotherapy my career. At the age of 28, I began my undergraduate degree. My subsequent supervisee experiences included helping children from single parent families and counseling car accident victims through their trauma and chronic pain. Today, I have a private practice where I see patients in person and via telehealth.
What should someone know about working with you?
I like to understand clients current stressors and past life stressors. I use attachment theory to help conceptualize how people see themselves in the world and rational emotive behavior therapy to help them have a healthy perspective of themselves in the world. I like to say, “Lousy therapists help you feel better; good therapists help you get better.” Therefore, I try to provide as many independent resources as possible for clients to benefit from between sessions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Read, read, read. I also self-reflect and consult with other therapists.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in the potential of humans and that an unhappy past does not resign you to an unhappy future.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I’m excited about the implication of neuroscience in psychotherapy and the bridging of cognitive therapy with attachment theory.
