Profile
“I have a personal understanding of struggle and what it takes to build resiliency through whatever life may bring, and I believe this allows for me to have a greater capacity for empathy and understanding while empowering others to overcome what life may have handed to them.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have a personal understanding of struggle and what it takes to build resiliency through whatever life may bring, and I believe this allows for me to have a greater capacity for empathy and understanding while empowering others to overcome what life may have handed to them. Through working in community mental health centers, nonprofits, inpatient and residential settings, public school settings, outpatient settings, and private practice, I've developed a deep understanding of individuals with various backgrounds, experiences, and struggles. I am grateful to be a small part of so many success stories. My therapeutic style and stamina are centered on my belief that people are resilient and have the capacity for growth and change no matter their circumstances or difficulties. Being an upbeat and positive person myself, I empower my clients to develop a strong, positive view of who they are, who they can be, and how to bring both of these into their current reality.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work to create a therapeutic environment marked by warmth, empathy, collaboration, and approachability. I believe that client feedback is important to establishing a strong therapeutic relationship and encourage this throughout the therapy process. I provide individualized person-centered interventions, teaching additional skills and techniques to improve social-emotional functioning and help you cope with what you are going through. Not everyone wants homework or structured sessions. If you don’t, we can go with the flow during our time together and you can tell me what you are looking for and choose what we focus on in sessions. If you are looking for more structure, I have plenty of worksheets and handouts that we can use to help guide your experience in and outside of our sessions. Progress is very individualized and I am interested in hearing what it means to you and what it may look like to you. This will help us guide our sessions together.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Continued personal and professional development is very important to me personally and within my practice. I am always reading new books on different emerging topics within the mental health field and self-development. I am always interested in expanding what I am able to offer to my clients and looking for opportunities to do so. I love to network and work with other professionals within the field and within neighboring fields (medical health professionals, physical therapists, psychiatric professionals, and nutrition and wellness coaches) to provide resources for clients looking for a more holistic approach to healing.
What else should someone know about working with you?
By understanding that emotional pain can often take root in the mind-body connection and cause difficulties with thoughts, behaviors, and overall functioning, I incorporate aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, psychoeducation, brainspotting, and mindfulness to help tailor interventions for optimal healing and recovery. I also use brainspotting as a tool to neurobiologically process and release sources of emotional and body-based pain and a variety of other challenging symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind.
