Profile
“I’ve never been a judgmental person, which is very important in a therapist, and I’ve had some really positive therapy experiences in my own life that led me to provide that same experience for others.”
What was your path to becoming a Licensed Mental Health Counselor?
I’ve always been “that friend” who people came to in order to talk about the hard things. I’ve never been a judgmental person, which is very important in a therapist, and I’ve had some really positive therapy experiences in my own life that led me to provide that same experience for others.
What should someone know about working with you?
I usually take a conversational approach to therapy so that it isn’t overwhelming or anxiety-inducing. My clients and I discuss the areas in their lives that they feel need improvement, we establish goals, and we work together to problem-solve and achieve those goals.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
As a therapist, I believe that it is my job to continue to learn and grow throughout my career so that I can help my clients in as many ways as possible. Training, articles, books, and consultation are some of the many different ways to grow as a therapist, and I believe in taking any opportunity I can to do so. I continuously seek out knowledge in subject areas that I may not be familiar with but that are important to my clients.
How do your own core values shape your approach to care?
As a bisexual woman, I have experienced my own struggles with acceptance and validity out in the world. I work mostly with the LGBTQ+ community because it is also MY community, and the struggles that our community face are unique and require empathy that is both accurate and genuine.
