What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I originally set out to be in the corporate world having had a business degree. After the urging of a friend to apply for a position in social work I succumbed to what I was most passionate about, helping to strengthen families. I realized in strengthening families you must first strengthen the individual. Unfortunately, within our society we no longer seem to focus on the importance of the strength of intact families and how much it plays a part into many of the overall problems we want to resolve. The other part of this is the importance of financial literacy.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

Reoccurring themes/issues I have noticed in working with individuals is the amount of influence social media has begun to effect the overall mood and perception of individuals. I am finding the more time spent on social media an individual consumes the higher the amount of internal judgement an individual has on self.

Work History

Over the past years I have helped adults and children find their voice after having it taken away by various life events. Walking along side individuals when they feel alone without passing judgement is my specialty. I am familiar in working in community and school settings and understand how each perceive mental health. I have worked with various stakeholders in assisting children and young adults successfully advocate for themselves.
