Profile
“I have always been empathic and driven to help others and I feel that through therapy, I can really help others explore, process, and/or change behaviors and emotions.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I originally went to school for teaching and while I enjoyed it, I found myself more focused on the behaviors and emotions of the people I worked with. I have always been empathic and driven to help others and I feel that through therapy, I can really help others explore, process, and/or change behaviors and emotions. I also feel that I can make an impact on others because of my personal and familial experiences with mental health and addiction coupled with my clinical training and experience. I've worked in outpatient mental health, addiction facilities, and private practice with teenagers, adults, the geriatric population, and couples (for marriage counseling). I've worked with individuals struggling with depression, borderline personality disorder, anxiety, addiction, bipolar disorder, stress, self-esteem issues, and trauma.
What should someone know about working with you?
The first few sessions are typically for myself and my client to build rapport. I believe in setting small, realistic, and attainable goals collaboratively with my clients to help facilitate change and assist them in reaching long-term goals. I like to gather information and get to know my clients and the factors contributing to their presenting issues. I also like to assign homework if a client is open to that.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I frequently participate in training and continuing education to improve my skills and to learn and understand new developments in mental health.
