Profile
“It can be very complicated work but also very rewarding to see clients go from suffering to smiling after working for a while.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was married and divorced at a very young age and it was the most difficult event that I had to live through. When I first started counseling, I did not want to work with couples in part because of my personal pain. After a while, I found that many people seek therapy for relationship problems so I confronted my pain and now I really enjoy working with couples. It can be very complicated work but also very rewarding to see clients go from suffering to smiling after working for a while.
What should someone know about working with you?
I compare our first session to when you go in to see a medical doctor; a doctor needs to perform tests before they can know how to be helpful. When we first meet, I'll ask a lot of questions that give me a wider angle of who you are and how I can help. I will assign some light homework that will help you make changes quicker and more profoundly.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting material that will build my tool shed and enable me to give folks more strategies on their journey.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I grew up in a family that valued education, hard work, and respect. When working with someone, I encourage them to identify their own values to help them make wiser decisions.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I find the research with psychedelics very interesting due to the scientific approach that is being used to study the matter. There are certain folks who have a hard time making changes for themselves in traditional settings and may benefit from these innovations in ways they wouldn’t from existing approaches.
