Profile
“My approach to therapy is holistic (integrating mind, body, spirit, and energy) and non-pathologizing (viewing symptoms as a response or solution rather than a disorder or illness).”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
As a teen, I knew I wanted to be of service, but it took me a decade to realize exactly how. It then took almost another decade to bring that vision to fruition and become a licensed therapist. My path has included (in no particular order) struggles with my own mental health, exploring spirituality and alternative ways of healing, 15 years in the restaurant business, four colleges and one graduate program, yoga teacher training, and becoming a certified clinical emotional freedom technique (tapping) practitioner. All of these life experiences (and then some) have shaped me into being a therapist who is able to provide a space of safety, nonjudgment, empathy, compassion, total acceptance of who and where the client is, collaboration (acting as a guide, not an expert), humor, and authenticity (I am human first and a therapist second).
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach to therapy is holistic (integrating mind, body, spirit, and energy) and non-pathologizing (viewing symptoms as a response or solution rather than a disorder or illness). As part of my practice, I incorporate a somatic and mindfulness-based approach and often utilize and teach clients energy psychology modalities (such as EFT tapping). These are techniques they may use (and are encouraged to use) on their own in between sessions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am constantly learning and exploring as well as staying connected with other therapists, doing my own inner work, and receiving supervision and mentoring. The field continues to expand at a rapid rate (which is very exciting) so it's important to me to stay informed about all the advances and findings (for myself but, more importantly, for my clients).
