What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I had seen friends who were struggling with their mental health and who had fears about letting others know. This motivated me to become the comfort that people need in order to get help. I provide a judgement-free zone and encourage clients to express themselves in any way they like.
What should someone know about working with you?
Therapy isn't going to be easy and it isn’t going to get better overnight — it is a process. You will not feel rushed working with me because I work at your pace. I like to assign a few things for you to do on your own so we can see progress during the sessions and how outside of them.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I complete courses from time to time and I read a range of books to help me provide a good experience for my clients. I also touch base with colleagues to see what techniques are working for them and so I can apply them to my sessions.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
One of my core values is respect and kindness. No matter how big or small your concern is, I will always see it as an important matter because it matters to you.
