Profile
“I have always been interested in helping people and have been impressed with the resiliency of people.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Prior to becoming a psychologist, I provided daycare for numerous children in my home while I raised my three daughters. My plan was to become a nurse, but I was encouraged by a psychologist friend to become a therapist. I have always been interested in helping people and have been impressed with the resiliency of people.
What should someone know about working with you?
My approach to therapy is eclectic and I vary my treatment in response to the needs of each individual. I believe the needs of the person seeking therapy should guide the process. I enjoy working with individuals and families and am flexible in my approach.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
While continuing education is a requirement of state licensing, I see it more as an opportunity to learn new things and reinforce past knowledge. I typically choose courses that are relevant to my practice but will also delve into new approaches and research available. I am interested in becoming certified in EMDR in the near future.
