What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I previously went to school as a business major and took a behavioral health course as an elective during my undergraduate studies. From that moment on, it was love at first sight and I have never looked back. I went on to receive my social work degree with an emphasis on mental health and substance use disorders. Obtaining my degree in social work was one of the best decisions of my life. I view it as a privilege and a sacred journey to walk with clients on their journey toward healing and empowerment!
What should someone know about working with you?
I have a passion for providing the utmost quality of service to individuals struggling with mental health issues. During the therapy process, I assist clients in discovering their strengths, building support systems, and developing a healthy lifestyle to set the foundation for life success. My approach is very interactive, engaging, collaborative, and goal-oriented. I have experience working with adults with a variety of challenges, including depression, anxiety, trauma, co-occurring disorders, relationships, stress management, and life transitions.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I attend as many continuing education courses as I can find and strive to be trauma-informed for the benefit of the clients I aim to serve. I collaborate with other clinicians on a regular basis in order to stay abreast of upcoming trends and evidence-based practices. I keep my certifications and training up-to-date and attend yearly conferences with experts in the field.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I am pretty open, honest, down-to-earth, engaging, and action-oriented. I enjoy working with clients in the areas of life transitions, depression, anxiety, and relationships.
