Profile
“I use my diverse clinical experience to provide culturally-sensitive and empirically-based interventions and strategies that assist clients in reducing symptoms and reaching their goals.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Previously, I was in sales and marketing and worked as an ESL teacher abroad. I draw from my diverse life experiences and openness to diverse cultures and subcultures to provide understanding and insight to clients. I've worked in geriatric social work, ER crisis intervention, hospice, a day treatment center for dual diagnosis, and private practice. I use my diverse clinical experience to provide culturally-sensitive and empirically-based interventions and strategies that assist clients in reducing symptoms and reaching their goals.
What should someone know about working with you?
I've successfully assisted clients with a broad array of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, OCD, existential challenges, transitions, and self-individuation. I'm effective at guiding clients toward establishing personal, social, and life/work boundaries. Facilitating the process of clients exploring, expressing, and living from their authentic self is fulfilling.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
To be effective, a therapist must constantly work on self-development. I diligently explore new research on cutting-edge methods and techniques to assist my clients in addressing a multitude of issues. I am constantly expanding myself and my understanding of what different clients are working toward.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
Teletherapy is here to stay! The quarantine during the pandemic cemented teletherapy as a viable alternative to in-person therapy. Research has demonstrated that teletherapy is just as effective as in-person therapy. It has made a huge difference in reaching clients who can't make it to an office. Future innovations in technology will make teletherapy the go-to method for psychotherapy.
