“My counseling style is open, reflective, warm, and interactive.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have experience working in outpatient clinics and nonprofit programs, providing counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. I have training in EMDR and emotional freedom technique (EFT). My counseling style is open, reflective, warm, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. It takes courage to take the first steps toward change and a healthier life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process consists of two sessions focused on your needs to determine the best course of treatment and support. Progress is monitored through reflection of symptoms and goals accomplished. Homework is assigned based on the need and input from the client.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I continue to attend seminars directed toward the best practices of addressing anxiety and depression. I also read books on brain health and neuropsychology.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values of love, kindness, honesty, and that everyone should be treated the same have shaped my worldview. I have often advocated for clients in various ways to provide support.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Mental health treatment can now reach more individuals, provide more accessible services, and allow people to see providers more frequently if needed.
