Profile
“I worked at a nonprofit that provided access to mental health services to a severely underserved population, including clients experiencing severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI).”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I worked at a nonprofit that provided access to mental health services to a severely underserved population, including clients experiencing severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI). This experience changed my perception of psychological illness and mental health and deepened my understanding of the absolute value of every individual person and the infinite potential that lies within each of us. I feel in awe of my clients, the struggles they face, and their determination to work through them; I consider it an honor to be trusted to facilitate a healing process.
What should someone know about working with you?
I try to make the therapeutic process simple and transparent. My goal is to rapidly identify what your concern is and what prevents you from addressing this concern. More complex situations need more exploration. As quickly as possible, short and long-term goals will be identified and you will decide what to address. Super easy homework is assigned in order to boost the work already done and prepare for the next session (this is not a requirement). You will always be the judge of progress; my job is to indicate at the onset of working together what progress might look like in your unique situation.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Despite my experience and knowledge gained over the years, I continue to use supervision to check my thinking and improve outcomes for my clients. I also benefit from peer support. Additionally, I am always on the lookout for new information or modalities that will improve my ability to provide the highest quality of care.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
Early in my career, I had the opportunity to participate in the groundbreaking research related to New York State’s Wellness Self-Management Program. One core principle that resulted from this research was the importance of developing, sustaining, and utilizing a social support network. I often stress this to my clients and let them know how critical this resource is and how helpful it can be for both giver and receiver of support.
