Profile
“All of my experiences have made me an empathetic and nonjudgmental mental health provider who realizes the importance of providing mental health treatment.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
While attending college, I worked in a psychiatric hospital where I was able to see the importance of mental health; this led me to change my career path. During the course of my career, I have worked with clients with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, OCD, and trauma. I have also worked with seriously mentally ill clients suffering from schizophrenia, psychosis, bipolar disorder, and schizoaffective disorders. I have worked in inpatient, outpatient, and correctional-based settings. Additionally, I have provided dialectical behavioral therapy for borderline personality disorders while working in an intensive treatment program within a correctional facility. All of my experiences have made me an empathetic and nonjudgmental mental health provider who realizes the importance of providing mental health treatment.
What should someone know about working with you?
In order to gain insight into my client’s issues and provide the best care and approach, I initially inquire about their history, childhood, symptoms, age of onset, employment, education, upbringing, and relationships. I enjoy assigning homework as I feel it is a great tool that enables one to gain insight into their issues while providing coping strategies. I particularly enjoy working with clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, OCD, and anger.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
To continue learning and building competencies as a provider, I attend a variety of webinars and seminars in order to stay up-to-date on the most current practices. I also continue to attend supervision where I am able to receive feedback and hear different treatment strategies.
