Profile
“I utilize a combination of solution-focused and rational emotive behavioral approaches, which means that I assist clients in identifying both the self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that they engage in as well as the real inner strength they have to overcome their struggles.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always had a fascination with the unknown, branching from outer space to mythology. The same was true when I learned about the complexities and intricacies of the human mind, which led me to study psychology. Coming from a family of helpers (including teachers and medical professionals), it naturally followed that I pursue my passion for the clinical. I have volunteered at a local crisis call center handling crises ranging from runaway youth and depression to sexual assault and suicide. I interned at a local group practice where I gained experience working with children and learning the administrative aspects of the craft. I worked at a community mental health clinic where I assisted clients of all ages struggling with behavioral issues, homelessness, terrible traumas, and severe mental illness. I have experienced firsthand the power that the combination of being understood along with access to appropriate solutions can have on the quality of one's life overall.
What should someone know about working with you?
I utilize a combination of solution-focused and rational emotive behavioral approaches, which means that I assist clients in identifying both the self-defeating thoughts and behaviors that they engage in as well as the real inner strength they have to overcome their struggles. This involves a collaborative approach between client and therapist with homework assignments at the end of most sessions in order to continue the therapeutic process outside the session. Many clients find that they start to view things differently within time, which greatly improves their overall mental and emotional health.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I make sure to keep up with the latest research in my areas of interest by subscribing to a few clinical journals. Additionally, I keep my skills sharp by engaging in workshops, gaining certifications, and taking advantage of occasional supervision opportunities.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about the expanding literature on the mind-body connection. We are exploring how our levels of emotional distress can have physiological consequences as well as how our diets and lifestyle choices can impact the mind. This creates a more holistic view, allowing for a greater variety of treatment options and approaches.
