Profile
“I share with all my clients that I expect therapy to be productive and behavioral change to be possible.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always had a fascination with neuroscience, which led me to a dual focus in my counseling career. Early in my career, I focused on rehabilitation counseling, working with adjustment to physical disability, traumatic brain injury, or work/career issues. This permitted me to engage in a variety of disability systems, such as social security, workers compensation, veterans administration, and disability insurance. As technology expanded our understanding of brain functioning, I shifted my focus to mental health counseling with an emphasis on working with trauma and addiction. My emphasis shifted from helping others navigate complex systems to working toward personal goals and facilitating behavioral change.
What should someone know about working with you?
I share with all my clients that I expect therapy to be productive and behavioral change to be possible. I appreciate that they are willing to invest their time and efforts with me and engage in a collaborative process. After building a framework from which we can understand and explore complaints, I invite clients to participate in evidence-based treatments to navigate and engage anxiety, depression, anger, fear, and other emotional/behavioral disruptions.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am most excited about the effectiveness of current treatments and the increased acceptance of behavioral health services.
