Profile
“I specialize in integrating components of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and inner-child healing to help my clients connect to their innate power, heal, and address their deepest wounds in order to take control over their lives in the here and now.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Growing up, I was the “therapist” of my friends. I noticed that many people would open up to me and tell me the truths of their lives, and I was always there to listen. I earned my bachelor’s in anthropology and my master’s in social work. Throughout my studies, I spent time traveling and learning in India, South Africa, and Tanzania before planting my feet in my career. Now, I have several years of experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in inpatient psych, psych rehab, community-based counseling, mental health residential care, and home-based treatment for families and older adults. I specialize in integrating components of cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and inner-child healing to help my clients connect to their innate power, heal, and address their deepest wounds in order to take control over their lives in the here and now.
What should someone know about working with you?
I like to take the first session to introduce new clients to my services, get an overview of what brings you to therapy, and collect information regarding medical and mental health history. Follow-up sessions consist of establishing goals for treatment and prioritizing interventions that best support the desired outcomes. My approach is a combination of exploration, discussion, and teaching my clients to be their own source of motivation, safety, and guidance.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
When I began my career in mental health, I thought my time with my clients would always be spent in a small office. Now, with telehealth becoming more widely recognized and accepted, I am very excited to provide care without the limitations of physical space and time constraints. Telehealth increases access to care for people who cannot make it to the office due to their busy schedule, where they live, childcare needs, or lack of transportation. Everyone should have access to the treatment they deserve.
