Profile
“You and I will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I became a therapist to promote healing and transform lives. I have always had a helping type of personality and I am easy-going. My ultimate goal is to help individuals reach their greatest potential. I have a master’s degree in clinical counseling, which I obtained in 2005. I am a licensed professional counselor, a licensed clinical alcohol and drug counselor, and a certified trauma counselor. I have always been motivated to enhance my career and education so I can be of more use to the clients I work with. The more I know and understand, the more I can be a promoter of healing.
What should someone know about working with you?
You and I will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best. By the time you’re done, you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in but you will have learned new skills so you can better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future. I enjoy working with young adults with an array of struggles and difficulties. My professional approach to therapy is eclectic; I am committed to tailoring my therapeutic or assessment approach to your needs and helping you manage specific problems or achieve balance and growth in your life. As your therapist, you can always expect me to be honest, transparent, empathetic, and compassionate. I also use humor in an effective and responsible way!
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Teletherapy helps make therapy accessible to everyone, even those who are bogged down by the stigma of walking into a psychotherapist’s office. Teletherapy also allows clients to access an array of therapists and not just those in a 5-10 mile radius. It is definitely an interesting and innovative time we are living in!
