“I am funny and can help you find the strengths in your experiences.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
This is my second career, although I have always participated and worked in a service environment. I was always sensitive to the experience of others and their silent pain. I am funny and can help you find the strengths in your experiences. I have worked in community substance abuse programs, foster care, detention centers, and professional development roles. I have managed corporate clients and been a confidant for professional artists. I have worked with all ages and I like to listen, validate, and help.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am energetic and hopeful. We will do the tough work together. I am here for you. Do you need me to listen? Okay. Would you like feedback? That's okay, too. Therapy is determined by the client’s wishes.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I listen to others, take courses, and collaborate with other practitioners in the field.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
We all need someone to validate our pain; it makes us feel like we are not alone and no one should feel alone in their pain.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I enjoy watching people learn who their true selves are.
What is the therapeutic environment?
Your space to be brutally honest.
