Profile
“Respecting my client’s truths, validating my client’s feelings, and providing objectivity along with encouragement are the strengths I bring as a clinician.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I worked for over 24 years in academia at an Ivy League institution where I was the department administrator for three departments. Working in academia allowed me to experience many types of people with different points of view. Learning to respect one's story and fully appreciating the individual for who they are is the foundation of my practice. I remember reading a scripture that said, "A man's heart is like deep waters, but a person of understanding is able to draw it out.” My desire is to understand and appreciate my clients as unique individuals. Respecting my client’s truths, validating my client’s feelings, and providing objectivity along with encouragement are the strengths I bring as a clinician. Working in academia, volunteering at three hospitals, and serving in various capacities with community groups and churches has taught me that everyone has something special within them that they are purposed to do.
What should someone know about working with you?
As a clinician, I have worked in academia and an outpatient clinic. I have experience working with clients ranging in age from 4-55. I tailor treatment based on the client's needs and strengths. During the intake process, we will collaborate on treatment planning, complete relevant assessments, and get an idea of what works and what doesn't. I do assign homework and/or activities useful in gaining better sleep satisfaction, reducing anxiety, processing feelings associated with depression, interrupting negative thought patterns, and building self-esteem, just to name a few. I am a strong advocate for self-care and will also assign homework incorporating time to restore.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I am currently pursuing a PhD in counseling and psychology. I am concentrating on life coaching and helping professionals grow and move beyond feeling stuck.
