Profile
“I genuinely believe we all carry a chest of tools within us and my job is to guide you to uncover them from the piles of experiences and feelings hiding them.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
The opportunity to witness firsthand the impact of loss and trauma while living in the US and abroad created a fertile ground where seeds of compassion, empathy, and acceptance flourished. At an early age, I learned that feeling seen, heard, and safe breeds growth and transformation and I knew I wanted to learn how to offer this effectively. However, my many interests led me to explore a variety of subjects and fields while the calling to support others became louder and louder. When I finally landed in my first social work class, I knew I was on the right path. It takes a holistic approach to address the needs and challenges of others through the use of advocacy, empowerment, and development and this resonated with me. I understood that to create space for growth, healing, and transformation, all of our parts needed to be invited to the table.
What should someone know about working with you?
I genuinely believe we all carry a chest of tools within us and my job is to guide you to uncover them from the piles of experiences and feelings hiding them. Other times, my job may be to help you learn when or how to use these tools. Do you use a screwdriver, a hammer, or a saw to release that pain?
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am excited to see exponential growth in the area of mental health awareness and continued increase in accessibility to services. I am also inspired by the current research into new forms of treatment for a number of mental health disorders.
