If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

I believe everyone needs therapy at some point in their life. We all go through difficult situations in life and need that extra help to assist us, listen to us, and help us think through our options. That is what I am here for...

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My style is person centered, I am here to listen and help you come up with solutions to whatever you are facing.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Making that initial step is so scary for many people but once they do, getting connected to the right therapist can be life changing. I always say that choosing a therapist may take some time and they need to be a good match for you: you have to get to know your therapist, their personality, their treatment modalities to make sure they are a right fit for you.

Work History

I am currently working as the Chief Operating Officer at Hospice supervising a variety of services: kitchen staff, maintenance, housekeeping, IT department, public relations and marketing, volunteers, social work and bereavement, and home-based CNAs. I recently served as the Vice President of Human Resources and Director of Social and Spiritual Services at another Hospice agency supervising social workers and clergy. I have also worked as an outpatient therapist at a medical facility providing clinical assessments, using SBIRT, and providing an integrated form of healthcare. In the past, I have served as an executive director and therapist at a small non-profit agency for 16 years serving victims of sexual violence and domestic violence.
