“I am here to support you and support your growth.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I completed my master’s degree in clinical psychology with a concentration in mental health counseling. I also completed an internship at a sexual assault treatment center, which included specialty rotations providing counseling to survivals of sexual assault, working in crisis intervention, engaging children through play therapy, and providing counseling to child and adult survivors of abuse. I then completed training and clinical work at Women in Distress and training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders as well as health and wellness coaching. I pride myself on providing holistic compassionate care to adult professionals and addressing all aspects of an individual (including biological, psychosocial, and spiritual). In addition to my mental health licensure, I have a bachelor’s of science degree in nursing with a specialization in psych nursing and medical case management. I have worked in inpatient mental health, medical, and outpatient dual diagnosis settings.
What should someone know about working with you?
My work with clients is individualized, client-centered, and solution-focused. You sit in the driver’s seat while I help you to reach your goals and become your best self!
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continuously attend training in the areas of anxiety, depression, and trauma in order to sharpen my skills and provide quality care to all of my clients.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I understand that physical health is just as important as mental health. I treat all of my clients using an integrative approach, complemented by a great level of professionalism, respect, and dignity while providing superior care to everyone I see. This is a judgment-free zone where you can participate in video telehealth or in-person treatment with no fear of judgment. Come as you are but expect to do the work and grow as an individual. I believe therapy takes effort. If you are willing to do the work, I am willing to help you along to reach your goal and become the best version of you! This is a partnership dedicated to reaching your goals!
