Profile
“I work from a philosophy of honesty, transparency, and authenticity.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I originally wanted to be a lawyer but life happened and I experienced some trauma, had a child, helped find someone to guide her through her trauma, and figured that after being on the “other side of the couch,” I wanted to create a safe space where clients can come and not feel judged. I’ve worked in a plethora of settings, from prisons to hospitals and everything in between. I feel like I’ve heard it all before, so nothing comes as a surprise to me. I’ve learned to create a safe space for others through their experiences.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work from a philosophy of honesty, transparency, and authenticity. I hold clients accountable for their actions and support them through their journeys of self-discovery in a compassionate way. Occasionally, I assign homework to clients in an effort to motivate behavioral change and consistency of new habits.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a doctorate-level, dual-licensed (Nevada and Arizona) behavioral health professional with a specialty in integrated behavioral health. I constantly encourage and guide others toward making healthy behavioral changes. I maintain my education by attending webinars, workshops, and in-person events. I enjoy learning about all topics, especially how to improve my current skill set. I try to collaborate with other providers worldwide to learn best practices, embrace new skills, and network.
