Profile
“Working with me is like working with a friend who is very professional but also cares.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always wanted to be a counselor. I started as a client myself and eventually majored in psychology as an undergrad. Most of my learning happened through curiosity and was experiential. I worked in some of the most difficult settings when I first went into the field so that I would be prepared for private practice. I have experience working in group homes and with young adults, juvenile criminal offenders, families in crisis, and folks on the autism spectrum.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working with me is like working with a friend who is very professional but also cares. I will work as hard as you regarding the counseling process and clients can text or email between sessions if necessary. I enjoy seeing my clients succeed and take pride in the progress my past clients have made to achieve their goals. I am also patient with the process and respectful of the process if clients need more time.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about how telehealth is normalizing counseling and allowing people to access this resource as a tool for self-improvement and increased life satisfaction.
