What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Psychotherapy has been a subject that I have been interested in from an early age through my own personal development and growth. This love of psychotherapy was something that I carried with me into college and now into my professional career. Therapy can be a place of profound growth; in my own journey, it has helped to unlock a deeper, more authentic understanding of myself. The unconditional acceptance and support that therapy offers has allowed me to navigate my own personal challenges and I seek to bring this opportunity to others. My goal in therapy is to create an experience that is carved out specifically for clients to talk about anything on their mind. I offer a space for clients to open up new insights, curiosities, and awareness about themselves and view their experiences through a lens free of judgment.
What should someone know about working with you?
I work within a Gestalt framework, which focuses on the whole person and acknowledges the connection between our mind, body, and emotions. We will work toward enhancing your awareness as a way to recognize unwanted thoughts and behavioral patterns that you have learned or that you’ve taken in from your environment over time. As we begin to develop this awareness, we can work to reorganize the self in a way that allows you to become a better version of you!
From your perspective, what is therapy?
There are an infinite number of reasons that lead us to embark on a therapeutic journey. Maybe something’s going on in your life and your current behavioral patterns and coping strategies to manage challenges aren't working any longer. Maybe everything is great and you just want to talk about it. Maybe you need to vent to someone other than friends or family. Maybe you’re having difficulty managing sadness or anxiety, a bad break-up, troubles at work, or new life transitions. Or maybe you just feel stuck in your daily routine and need support to move forward. There are so many different reasons why we seek therapy. Life happens (good and bad) and sometimes we need guidance to manage all of its ups and downs.
