Profile
“I am down-to-earth and not fancy; I don't believe that I know everything and I continue to learn.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I have always felt that each of us is unique and life is a journey to fully discover who we are. For so many reasons, we can become "disconnected" from ourselves or we can lose a sense of who we really are. This can result in anxiety, depression, or a general sense of not feeling whole or complete. I believe that therapy is a tool to help others reconnect with themselves, to help them fully become who they truly are, and to help them live lives that are complete and fulfilling.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am down-to-earth and not fancy; I don't believe that I know everything and I continue to learn. I also have a dry sense of humor. I sometimes give homework assignments if I believe it will be helpful. I enjoy working with clients who are committed to the work of further self-discovery and healing and those who are willing to dig deep.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I learn from my clients. I continue to study and recently completed a two-year program in spiritual counseling. I teach, consult regularly with colleagues, and I am always looking for new ways of working with people. For me, the learning never stops.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I believe strongly in acceptance, understanding, and openness; I work hard at creating and maintaining these values with everyone I work with.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am very excited about mind/body work as well as a fuller integration of spirituality into the field of mental health.
