What should someone know about working with you?
In our first session, I will take a detailed look at your history and collaborate with you on a plan for treatment. I offer a free consultation to answer questions you have and see if we are a good fit. I see individuals, families, and couples.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
I regularly complete continuing education seminars to ensure that I'm up-to-date with best practices.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
I strongly believe in the ability to work past challenging life events through honest conversation with a trained professional. My place as your therapist is to understand, guide, and educate but never apply judgment, give advice, or approach with bias.
What are you most excited about within the evolving mental health landscape?
I see mental health being taken more seriously in communities and schools and on social media. I hope that this promotes the value of a relationship with a therapist and decreases the stigma of seeking therapy.
What kind of therapist are you?
I am person-centered at heart with a foundation strongly based on humanism. I approach therapy without judgment or bias so that I can allow for change to take place in an honest and open environment.
