Profile
“I immigrated from Ireland, paused my studies to step into the role of motherhood, studied massage therapy, traveled, and later immersed myself in a retreat in Costa Rica before committing to my journey to become a therapist.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I suppose, like many, I took the circuitous route to become a therapist! I immigrated from Ireland, paused my studies to step into the role of motherhood, studied massage therapy, traveled, and later immersed myself in a retreat in Costa Rica before committing to my journey to become a therapist. All of these experiences, among others, shape the therapist I am today and my understanding of our evolving identities, my fascination with, and love of, diverse cultures (especially as it pertains to healing), and my commitment to cultivating presence. All human behavior is of interest to me, especially the forces that shape us or limit our potential and what it takes to prevail, overcome, and thrive!
What should someone know about working with you?
I do not require extensive intake paperwork, as I like to learn about my clients through their relating of their experience in the moment. My typical client is high-functioning but struggling in some aspect of life with things like anxiety, low mood, unresolved trauma, or relationships. My approach is tailored to reflect the unique needs and goals of each client, which we establish in the initial meetings. I often use systems theory, mindfulness, EMDR, CBT, and motivational interviewing.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
Continuing to evolve as a person and as a therapist and hone the art and science of therapy is very important to me. To that end, I attend multiple trainings annually, participate in ongoing supervision, and have amassed an impressive library for reference! Most recently, I completed attachment-focused EMDR and EMDR Level 3 with Laurel Parnell, PhD and The Impact of Intergenerational Transmission of Trauma on Adult Sexual Intimacy with Suzanne Iasenza, PhD at ICP.
