Profile
“My style is warm and empathic, but I can be challenging when it is needed in order to achieve growth.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have been fascinated by human behavior and psychology since I was a child and dreamed about being a psychologist. That dream is now a reality and I am honored when I am able to help people better their lives and achieve their goals. After completing my undergraduate degree in communications, I entered into a dual-degree program in clinical psychology where I obtained a master's degree and doctoral degree.
What should someone know about working with you?
My style is warm and empathic, but I can be challenging when it is needed in order to achieve growth. I have an eclectic approach to treatment, though I tend to draw from relational and cognitive behavioral approaches in order to design a specialized treatment plan based on your unique needs.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am always setting new goals for myself and expanding my knowledge base. During my postdoctoral internship, I became a certified alcohol and drug counselor (CADC) while I pursued my licensure as a psychologist and then went on to obtain an additional credential as a substance abuse professional (SAP). I have done additional training in maternal mental health and am working on certification in this field. My interest in maternal mental health was sparked when I experienced postpartum anxiety myself after having my first child.
