Profile
“I partner with clients and take an active role in helping them overcome obstacles to progress.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I grew up in a family who always believed in serving others. My mother volunteered for CancerCare and many of my relatives worked in social work, community organizations, and psychology. From a young age, I volunteered for a crisis hotline and as a peer counselor. I trained in mental health counseling and social work and had a mentor in graduate school who encouraged me to attend law school so that I could be a strong client advocate. After working for the Legal Aid Society and as an assistant director in a mental health clinic, my love of learning propelled me into education where I worked as a high school special education teacher. Eventually, I went into private practice in counseling.
What should someone know about working with you?
Initially, I spend time getting to know a person, understanding their background, and developing goals and objectives for counseling. I partner with clients and take an active role in helping them overcome obstacles to progress. I assign homework and, each session, chart what was accomplished during the week in order to capitalize on gains and work on areas needing improvement.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am thrilled to see a destigmatizing of mental health at all levels of society and a new emphasis on increasing happiness, resilience, and optimism in addition to the treatment for more traditional challenges and issues.
