“I love people with the willingness to better understand themselves.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have a background in the wellness and fitness industry and previously owned a business where I helped individuals develop lifestyle habits to address physical, mental, and spiritual growth. Mental health has been a passion of mine since my teenage years, and my life experience is what I feel led me to this profession. I am knowledgeable about working with clients struggling with addiction, codependency, trauma, spirituality, and personal exploration.
What should someone know about working with you?
I love people with the willingness to better understand themselves. Our sessions might consist of a combination of traditional talk therapy, journaling exercises, breathwork, meditation, homework (for further processing), and even yoga (if that suits you). My intention is to provide various tools to empower you to create the life you want.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
My continued training (level 2) in both the Gottman Method and EMDR therapy offers a mind-body approach to healing and incorporates different tools to best support you. I love learning about how a deeper understanding of ourselves can deepen the connections we have with others. I plan to continue my training in trauma-informed yoga and other somatic techniques for healing so that I can provide the best tools to the people who choose to work with me.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I'm excited about the future of telehealth; for the first time, it is allowing those seeking therapy an opportunity to find someone who best fits their needs! People are able to participate in sessions with more flexibility and from the comfort of their own space. Providers are also able to create a much better work-life balance to promote improved mental health on their end. It's a win-win in my opinion. I do still love in-person therapy, which is why I offer both to my clients.
