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

I did not necessarily choose to become a therapist, the profession sort of chose me. I initially went to graduate school to pursue a degree in Social Work at the graduate level but as I matriculated through my graduate program I realized that I had a passion for helping others & I realized that I love to teach as well. Being a therapist allows me to do both so I chose to take the Clinical route in Social Work my second year as a graduate student. and here I am 5 years later!

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am a very outgoing person therefore I really take the rapport building phase of therapy seriously. I place a lot of value on the fact that people are different, our backgrounds, the way in which we are socialize, culturally, etc. Therefore I do not attempt to use a single approach with one client. My approach is based on all of the aforementioned things and what a particular client is going through at the time, and where they are in the life stages journey. My training has thought me that all of these things can make or break the therapeutic alliance between client and therapist so I take them into considerations before working with a person.

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?

Yes, I noticed that lots of people have unresolved trauma from their past. I have worked with people from various socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds and the one thing that 75-80% of them shared was some history of trauma. Trauma affects people in various ways, sexually, mentally, physically, emotionally, and it takes years to face it and deal with it. A lot of people do not realize that they are more than their traumatic experiences in life and this is what I have learned as a therapist who treats trauma. Existentialism teaches that people are more than their life experiences, and that they are capable of living up to other dreams and goals. Trauma sticks with a person for life but it does not have to define who a person is.
