What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I believe, fundamentally, we all wish to be heard. I utilize a relational perspective and hope to limit some of the stigmas of mental health and therapy. I utilize an eclectic array of therapeutic interventions, including CBT, DBT, and ACT. We'll explore how your perspectives, behaviors, relationships, and life experiences influence your self-worth and mood. Therapy with me is collaborative, aiming to bring about greater efficacy and satisfaction in life and relationships. I understand that initiating therapy can be daunting. I'm here to make the process an easy and positive one for you. Please feel free to reach out for a free phone consultation (of any length), so I can address any doubts, concerns, and questions you may have.
What should someone know about working with you?
Sessions are customized to each individual and highly active, with both therapist and client engaged in identifying core problems, goals, and solutions. The ultimate goal in therapy is for clients to leave feeling better about themselves, their relationships, and their lives.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I love to read and I love to learn. Each year, I set a book goal where I aim to learn more information about the field of psychology. This year, I set a goal of 52 books.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I utilize a relational-cultural perspective through practice. Not only do I look at how a specific culture can impact someone’s life experience and mental health, but I look at how more salient cultural factors affect your life experience.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I’m excited about seeing more people engage in therapy.
Have you done any research-based work that you found particularly exciting? How does it inform your practice today?
I am trauma-informed.
