Licensed in
Therapy licenses aren't like driver's licenses — each state has its own set of rules. To offer care, a provider needs to be licensed in the state you're located in when sessions are happening.

Profile
“My counseling style is warm and interactive; I believe in meeting the client where they are and using reflective questions to guide sessions and change.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I went to undergrad as a declared social work major. I chose that path because I wanted (and still want) to help others. Since a young age, I have always had a passion for helping others. I find it very rewarding when others are able to grow and learn. I have worked in different settings, including behavioral hospitals, correctional facilities, and substance abuse facilities. At each place, I have always learned something from my clients and from the company. I like to think that I grow more as a person and as a therapist while my clients grow and learn in their change process.
What should someone know about working with you?
My counseling style is warm and interactive; I believe in meeting the client where they are and using reflective questions to guide sessions and change. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes implementation and dedication to create change. Therefore, I encourage my clients to implement skills learned on a daily basis and at times, I assign homework assignments but only if they will be beneficial.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I enjoy participating in training focused on treatment modalities. This field is always changing and every client is different. I believe it is important to learn more about different modalities. Whenever I feel like I need help with a client or need more information on a certain subject, I like to order books and read in my free time. I think reading helps me relax while learning more about a particular field.
