What was your path to becoming a therapist?
My path to becoming a therapist was driven by my lifelong love of creativity, creative expression, and empathy. I have been strongly influenced by my work in acute care with individuals experiencing significant crises in their lives. I understand that great strength and drive can be found in struggle and it is my goal to assist clients in discovering this resource within themselves. I have specialized training in body/mind integration, trauma, DBT, and grief counseling.
What should someone know about working with you?
Each and every session is customized to the individual needs of the client. Sessions begin with a generalized assessment and identification of goals as well as exploration of a variety of approaches we will collaboratively consider to assist in meeting your goals. These include verbal psychotherapy, counseling, creative arts therapies, DBT, CBT, grief counseling, and reiki therapy.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I regularly seek continuing education and consultation with other professionals.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I have done a significant amount of research in the area of body/mind awareness as it relates to healing, improving treatment outcomes, and empowerment.
