“I naturally enjoy listening to others and seeing them flourish and grow.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I explored what I most enjoyed and decided to make that my career choice. I naturally enjoy listening to others and seeing them flourish and grow. I love everything about the therapeutic space and the magic that can happen in it, including the active listening, collaboration, judgment-free zone, and full attention to personal growth and inner values.
What should someone know about working with you?
As a therapist, I aim to create the same space that I would want for myself. I want to offer a safe, calming space to connect and openly work to untangle the emotions and thoughts that sometimes plague us. I want to provide a safe space where anyone can come as they are. I highly emphasize collaboration and therapeutic rapport with each client. Before the initial session, I hold a brief phone consultation to review the specific needs and therapy expectations. This way, I can answer any questions and learn a little bit more about each person prior to scheduling the first session. Once we decide to move forward, the initial session consists of establishing the therapeutic goals and working through those goals together. I utilize an eclectic, multidimensional, and evidence-based therapeutic approach. Each session is tailored specifically to your own unique needs.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe in “whole person” healing and the integrated medical model. We are physical, social, emotional, and spiritual beings. When we are not living a life that fully represents who we are at our core, it can lead to feelings of decreased motivation, dissatisfaction, overwhelm, and burnout. I meet each individual as they are and help them explore and work through their own unique needs.
