Profile
“The therapeutic relationship is very important to me.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
This is my second career; previously, I worked for an insurance company providing care management services to individuals with substance use disorders and mental health diagnoses. However, I always had a soft spot for providing individual counseling. I spent most of my graduate internship and full-time job at a therapeutic center for children between the ages of 3-5. It was there where I fell in love with play therapy. It was also my first experience working with children with autism. A few years after, I had the pleasure of working with adolescents at an alternative high school in Brooklyn. It was there where I learned the importance of remaining true to my core values as a therapist. I also worked at an outpatient mental health center with individuals in adulthood. The common theme with those clients was simple: It’s never too late to start the healing process.
What should someone know about working with you?
The therapeutic relationship is very important to me. It’s essential that a client remains open and honest; only then can true healing occur.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I engage in continuing education classes. I also take part in a few peer-review groups.
