Profile
“I've enjoyed helping others heal and have picked up an eclectic style of practice, incorporating CBT, DBT, collaborative problem-solving, strengths-based techniques, and solution-focused principles into my practice.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was always the kid who observed others before jumping in. I was also the one others went to talk to. As I grew up, I found that I had an affinity for taking these natural talents and helping others. I got my first job in this field at 21 and haven't looked back. I've enjoyed helping others heal and have picked up an eclectic style of practice, incorporating CBT, DBT, collaborative problem-solving, strengths-based techniques, and solution-focused principles into my practice. I have extensive training and experience in interventions for eating disorders, self-harm, and autism but enjoy working with a wide variety of clients.
What should someone know about working with you?
What potential clients should know about me is that I'm very real, I’m laid back, and I like to speak with both humor and honesty. Progress isn't about leading the perfect life; it's about healing from the past and being able to cope with obstacles in new, more efficient ways. I don't always assign homework but I do when it's relevant to our goals and not just for its own sake.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
What I'm most excited about in the mental health field is how we view people who are struggling and the normalization of the process over diagnosis. It's an important step in destigmatizing therapy and getting help for the difficulties humans experience in society today. I've seen this across the board, from children struggling with behavior to adults going through various crises, and I am excited for the future of therapy as a field. I've never been a fan of seeing clients through the lens of diagnosis.
