Profile
“I believe in providing a holistic approach, which I find particularly important in my work with my clients.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
Growing up, the connection among thoughts, feelings, and behavior always intrigued me. My path to becoming a therapist began when I learned that my grandmother was diagnosed with dementia. I was obsessed with learning about the causes, symptoms, diagnosis, medications, and — most of all — her personality changes. As a result, I developed a love for psychology and psychopharmacology. I have worked and continue to work in various settings, including child welfare where I conduct family therapy and school settings where I apply all I have learned and experienced as well as evidence-based models I am still learning.
What should someone know about working with you?
I believe there is no one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. My population of focus is adults, 18 years and older. With an integrative approach that is customized to your goals, I help create a safe space utilizing compassion, empathy, and a judgment-free atmosphere for you to be your true self, explore your thoughts, and express your feelings. As a result, you will learn strategies to help you identify your triggers, learn coping methods, and increase your communication skills in order to strengthen your relationships.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I believe in providing a holistic approach, which I find particularly important in my work with my clients. I incorporate meditation, deep breathing, mindfulness, and guided imagery into my sessions. To yield greater and more meaningful results, I continue to collaborate with a team of clinicians as well as research and engage in continuing education and trainings.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I am super excited about the accessibility of mental health professionals and clients. There is power in telehealth, especially in eliminating the everyday hassles of commute time and parking. As a result, professionals are providing high-quality treatments, and clients are receiving their well-deserved services from the comfort of their homes.
