Profile
“I ask that you be just as committed as I will be in providing you with the support you need in your personal challenges.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Providing support to individuals having a tough time being human feels second nature. I studied social work on my way to becoming a forensic psychologist but I quickly learned that this was what I was meant to be doing. I didn't grow up in an expressive household or a community that encouraged attention to mental health but going through my own struggles helped me realize its importance.
What should someone know about working with you?
I have found mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) to be the most successful technique, but you may prefer a solution-focused brief therapy approach. Certain circumstances may call for a different modality, so I am prepared to utilize multiple tools and offer an eclectic approach to best suit your needs. We can schedule an initial consultation before completing an intake to determine if we are well-suited to work together. If we decide to move forward, I ask that you be just as committed as I will be in providing you with the support you need in your personal challenges. You will lead the way on your path to wellness, and I will serve as a resource and touchstone.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm very excited about improved accessibility to mental health providers. The introduction of telehealth has provided those who may feel apprehensive about walking into a physical office with more comfort when seeking the help they need.
