Profile
“Being a therapist has been a very rewarding career for me and I hope to continue to support individuals to be the best versions of themselves.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I’ve always had a knack for understanding others and their emotions. I completed a degree in social work due to the desire to help uplift individuals and uncover their strengths. After completing my master’s degree, I had the opportunity to work in a psychiatric emergency room. During this time, I was able to help people during what could’ve been their most vulnerable moments. I developed the desire to do more long-term work with individuals via psychotherapy, which led me to work in an outpatient clinic with adults and adolescents. I enjoy supporting individuals in reaching their goals, coping, improving communication skills, and developing healthy boundaries. Being a therapist has been a very rewarding career for me and I hope to continue to support individuals to be the best versions of themselves.
What should someone know about working with you?
Clients are required to complete intake forms online prior to their first session. I collaborate with clients in identifying their goals and utilizing their strengths to support a positive outcome. A safe space is provided for clients to feel comfortable in bringing in their thoughts and feelings. I will collaborate with clients to identify thought patterns/behaviors that may be leading to distress. I utilize different modalities to meet the client’s needs.
How do your own core values shape your approach to therapy?
I have a nonjudgmental attitude and accept people for who they are. I love learning about people and experiences that may have shaped their thoughts/behaviors. This has led me to become a therapist who is empathetic. I respect my client’s values and feelings and view them as valid.
