Profile
“Since healing happens in relationships, my first priority is to get to know you and establish a trusting relationship in a safe space.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I grew up in Europe and came to the United States as a teenager. I worked in a variety of jobs, none of which I found fulfilling. After staying home to raise my son, I became a volunteer counselor in a community agency. There, I discovered a passion for helping people overcome life’s challenges. This experience inspired me to become a psychotherapist. The challenges that I have overcome in my life have prepared me to guide others who struggle with their own challenges and help them live meaningful and fulfilling lives.
What should someone know about working with you?
My ideal clients are motivated and committed to their healing. Since healing happens in relationships, my first priority is to get to know you and establish a trusting relationship in a safe space. Together, we will discuss goals that you would like to achieve. Therapy is a process, not an event; it requires that you apply the skills you learn in sessions to your life.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Ever since I can remember, I’ve had a curious nature and a love of learning. I continue to enroll in workshops, webinars, and related training in current mental health and wellness. I am trained in mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and other modalities. I am also well-read in literature related to mind, body, and spirit. Therefore, I bring a holistic perspective to my practice.
