Profile
“I took some detours and have plenty of real life experience overcoming challenges, which has been the cornerstone of my nonjudgmental and understanding approach.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Being a therapist has been my calling from an early age. I took some detours and have plenty of real life experience overcoming challenges, which has been the cornerstone of my nonjudgmental and understanding approach. I am not the rigid, unrelatable academic type; sessions with clients include laughter, tears, growth, and most importantly....RELIEF.
What should someone know about working with you?
After listening to you and really hearing your story, we design a treatment plan together. I have a variety of approaches and will share with you which treatments will best help you meet your treatment goals and we’ll determine a direction, together. For some clients, an approach with homework keeps them engaged. For others, they prefer eye movement therapy because trauma is processed quickly and you don't have to find the right words. Still, others just want an inviting and comfortable place to process their feelings in a nonjudgmental environment.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe that my clients have wisdom within themselves. Effective therapy avoids advice-giving; it is walking beside the client on their journey, allowing them to come to their own truth and not the therapist’s truth.
