Profile
“Clinical psychology has always been my career. I've worked in research and with clients and enjoy each in their own ways (either way, I like to learn how to help people)!”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Clinical psychology has always been my career. I've worked in research and with clients and enjoy each in their own ways (either way, I like to learn how to help people)! In research, I get to use broad critical thinking skills to figure out, on average, how our treatments help people. In clinical work, I get to see how each unique individual might benefit from these treatments and what other techniques need to be added to make something effective for that person.
What should someone know about working with you?
At every step, I work to have a collaborative relationship with my clients. My intake process helps give me a sense of the specific problem you might be having as well as who you are as a person. I typically set some goals with you so we know what we're working toward. Sometimes, these are really specific and sometimes, they might be vague (either way is fine)! Sometimes, we'll talk about new strategies or techniques that you can practice outside of session but as with everything about our work, it will always be something that we agree together might be helpful!
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I love finding new ways to leverage technology to help people lead the lives they want. I think being able to be a therapist in someone's home (without leaving my own home) really allows people to practice and learn new skills in their own environment. The goal is always to help someone lead the life they want on a daily basis; someone being able to work toward that in their own space can be such an important opportunity.
