Profile
“I understand that it can be uncomfortable to reveal to a stranger that you need help, so I take a down-to-earth and client-centered approach to getting to know you.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I actually became interested in becoming a therapist in high school. My friends always came to me for advice, so I figured I should make a career out of it. After taking some psychology classes to be sure, I found the field very interesting and I enjoyed creating space for people to be themselves.
What should someone know about working with you?
Working with me is a casual and supportive healing process. I understand that it can be uncomfortable to reveal to a stranger that you need help, so I take a down-to-earth and client-centered approach to getting to know you. We work together to create a path toward healing and I use evidence based psychotherapy techniques to guide you through.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am a lifelong learner and strongly believe in immersing myself in information about culture, history, and diversity of the human experience. I attend conferences, workshops, trainings, and consultation groups and I read non-clinical material about life experiences as continuing education. I am currently immersing myself in culturally-informed trauma interventions as well as relational intergenerational trauma.
