Profile
“I have found my place by specializing in trauma disorders and I truly enjoy helping clients regain their power and realize their trauma does not define them.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I used to believe chance led me to therapy but through further examination, I realized I was meant to choose therapy as my career. Growing up, a close family member struggled with mental illness and later on, several friends struggled as well. I learned from a young age that mental illness can happen to anyone and showing up as a loving figure of support can make all the difference. I was able to take this learned experience and turn it into learned expertise. I have worked with a wide variety of mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, panic, trauma, substance abuse, relationship issues, and low self-esteem. I have found my place by specializing in trauma disorders and I truly enjoy helping clients regain their power and realize their trauma does not define them. I hope to continue to challenge myself through education and self-growth to better my practice.
What should someone know about working with you?
I aim to make therapy a nurturing, safe, and judgment-free space. I look to build a bond with clients as I provide them with tools to help them shape their day-to-day experiences. Although I have expertise in mental health, I am not an expert on someone else’s life, so I encourage clients to be active participants in their healing. Through this collaboration, I teach clients how to spot patterns and behaviors that may be holding them back.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I use humor, empathy, optimism, tenacity, and flexibility in my work. Growing up in New York City, I have learned the importance of rolling with the punches. Therapy is far from easy and sometimes it can feel overwhelming; I hope to bring resilience and love into my work to help empower my clients as they navigate through this sometimes difficult process. Everyone has a different lived experience and it is vital that all therapists are both educated and open to changing their therapy to fit a client’s lived experience. I hope to achieve the best practice by challenging my own worldview and educating myself on my client’s worldview. I believe therapy should be a loving and intimate professional relationship.
