“When working with me, I will move at your pace but also seek to challenge and help you think outside of the box.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Social work is my first career and I cannot see myself doing anything else. I have sought to help others since I was a youth. I use my life experiences and clinical training to make therapy relatable. I have worked in foster care, correctional health, and private practice. The combination of my personal experiences and work experiences have blended to give me a unique perspective of adversities and obstacles in different systems as well as on micro and macro levels.
What should someone know about working with you?
When working with me, I will move at your pace but also seek to challenge and help you think outside of the box. My goal is to guide and assist you in meeting your goals. Our relationship is built upon rapport and trust to ensure we are a good fit for one another. During the intake process, we will go through your history to get a general overview and we will delve further into subjects throughout our time together. We will also develop treatment goals in an effort to recognize when and if you have met your goals. I do sometimes assign homework if you are receptive to it. I enjoy working with clients who are open to the process. No one model of therapy works for everyone and I seek to cater my style to the client. I appreciate transparency on what works and what does not work for you.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I enjoy the growth and awareness of mental health as a whole. I hope people continue to erase the stigma of seeking mental health treatment.
