Profile
“My humanistic and empathetic style of therapy comes naturally and fosters therapeutic communication and interaction with the purpose of alleviating symptoms of dysfunction associated with diagnosed mental illness and emotional disturbance; I also strive to reverse or change maladaptive patterns of behavior while encouraging personal growth and development.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Having been involved in the human service industry in a variety of settings, it didn’t take long for me to realize benevolence is not enough! I pursued my decision to become a licensed practitioner of the healing arts in order to empower, advocate, and educate individuals, families, and groups on a myriad of issues toward healing and change. My humanistic and empathetic style of therapy comes naturally and fosters therapeutic communication and interaction with the purpose of alleviating symptoms of dysfunction associated with diagnosed mental illness and emotional disturbance; I also strive to reverse or change maladaptive patterns of behavior while encouraging personal growth and development. I use evidence-based modalities consisting of CBT, DBT, motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and imago relationship therapy with an understanding of an individual’s capacity to achieve age-appropriate developmental milestones.
What should someone know about working with you?
It's important to know you are not alone and it can be difficult for many people to reach out for professional guidance. I make every effort to respectfully obtain as much information regarding your situation on intake. If compatible, we can work on formulating a strengths-based treatment plan commensurate with your goals and needs. It may be a short-term adjustment or a long-term journey you’re seeking. Both my personal and professional experience has shaped my knowledge and passion for working with people of all abilities who may be affected by a range of issues, including domestic/dating/sexual violence, atypical neurodevelopmental challenges, and overall life transitions. With a kind heart, a skilled ear, and a bit of humor, you can expect collaboration on your path of self-discovery.
