Profile
“Throughout my work, I have supported clients as they gain a deeper insight into their past and present and examine the underlying meanings and causes of their issues.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I wasn’t always a therapist; prior to my current work, I had a full-time career as a family law attorney and certified mediator, but I wasn’t quite satisfied with my role as a litigator (which was often adversarial). Learning about the needs of my clients encouraged my desire and interest in helping people more personally and on an individual level. As a result, I chose to make a transition in my career. Since then, I have worked in multiple hospital settings, outpatient treatment centers, and private practice. Throughout my work, I have supported clients as they gain a deeper insight into their past and present and examine the underlying meanings and causes of their issues. As both a licensed clinical social worker and a licensed attorney, I bring a unique perspective to my work with individuals and families. Ultimately, my long-term goal is to help each client live a happier, more meaningful, and more fulfilling life.
What should someone know about working with you?
My intake process takes into consideration family of origin issues, history of current issues, and prior experiences in therapy. Many times, the client leaves the session with an assignment or reading material. My hope is for the client to be able to practice what is discussed in between sessions. It is also important for the client to adopt the strategies learned in the session and bring them into their life. I monitor progress in therapy by the client's increase in level of functioning, decrease in symptoms, and general mental health and wellness.
What do you do to continue learning and building competencies as a provider?
In order to stay abreast of current research, I continue to enroll in relevant mental health and wellness training workshops, conferences, and seminars. To date, some of the training I have received includes the following topics: CBT, lyme disease, integrative medicine for mental health, mindfulness approaches, crisis intervention, play therapy, and creative arts.
