What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

First and foremost, my goal is to ensure a nonjudgmental environment where clients can feel comfortable openly discussing vulnerable and sensitive issues. Therapy is one of the few places where you can express yourself freely and know that it will remain confidential. Your session goals are my priority; it’s your journey and a chance to pause and reflect on everything that’s happened during the week. Having a sounding board is so much more effective than just thinking things through by yourself. The initial session is 60 minutes and includes a comprehensive assessment of mental health, substance abuse, and trauma history. This assessment is your opportunity to discuss your current stressors and treatment goals. We will discuss a treatment plan and how I will help you to express yourself, develop coping skills, and guide you through the healing process. It is important for clients to know that this is your session and your journey. You will be in the driver’s seat, but I will be with you along the way; we will address the issues that you are comfortable addressing and on a timeline that is comfortable for you. So often, clients feel a sense of relief just by scheduling their first appointment. Knowing help is on the way is a comforting feeling. Over the years, clients have been hesitant to try therapy, but after the first session, they'll say, “I was so hesitant to try therapy, but I’m feeling better after this session. I don’t know why I waited so long to get started.”

Work History

I started my career as a paramedic. I quickly recognized my desire to help individuals with their mental health as well as their physical health. This realization led me to complete my master's degree in social work. I’ve worked with sexual assault and domestic abuse survivors, Veterans, individuals who have experienced trauma, and those experiencing grief and loss. I consider it a deeply meaningful experience to work with people when they are at their most vulnerable points; I am always honored by clients sharing their stories, concerns, and experiences with me.
