Profile
“As a therapist who's been on both sides of therapy, I bring a unique perspective.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
In college, I had a difficult time with my mental health. Stigma around mental health and therapy made it challenging for me to get the help I needed. When I finally started seeing a therapist, it was nearly impossible to see someone who looked like me or who understood the issues I was facing. When I was able to get my mental health on track, I decided that I wanted to be the therapist I needed when I was younger. As a therapist who's been on both sides of therapy, I bring a unique perspective. I am passionate about eradicating mental health stigma and making mental health care accessible to everyone.
What should someone know about working with you?
In the first few sessions, I focus on getting to know my clients. I feel it is important to know about their spiritual, financial, familia, and work lives because so many different aspects of our lives impact our mental health. Clients are not forced to answer any questions they are not ready to answer. Our therapeutic relationship is important, so I will do all I can to make sure we build trust.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I participate in peer-supervision and I am constantly researching innovative mental health practices. I am also intentional about the continuing education courses I take and love attending seminars.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am so excited that everyone is talking about mental health. I am excited that telehealth has made therapy even more accessible. It is my hope that people continue talking about mental health and open their minds to more than just anxiety and depression. There is still a lot of work to do toward eradicating mental health stigma surrounding those diagnosed with some forms of psychosis, substance dependency, or personality traits.
