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

What I strive for in my sessions is to be non-judgmental, collaborative, and validating. I believe that clients are the experts of themselves and I am here to assist you in making positive changes in your life. I adjust my sessions for clients' individual preferences and am always open to feedback to make our sessions as helpful for you as possible.

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

Therapy is beneficial for anyone at any stage in life. You don’t have to go through hard times alone. A lot of people compare their pain to others and say that they do not have it as hard as someone else so they can work through it on their own. What is hard for you is hard for you. Period. Regardless of what someone else is going through. Even if you are feeling ok, therapy can be useful too. You can get many benefits from therapy such as improved relationships, improved ability to manage emotions, work through events that happened in the past, learn tools to help with challenges that could happen later, have a more positive outlook, etc.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

We will work together to create therapy goals that make sense for you. These goals will become the focus for our sessions. One of my favorite parts of therapy is helping clients see their own unique strengths. Goal setting is an opportunity for us to discuss the strengths you already have. As you make progress on your goals, I will celebrate those wins with you! We will assess your progress throughout our time together and update goals as needed and desired.

Work History

In my career, I have had experience working with diverse groups of people with a variety of mental health concerns. I have helped people through challenges such as multiple transitions, identity issues, changes in friendships, big life decisions, learning to balance various aspects of life, and grief and loss. I have experience working with children, teens, and adults. Some clients were in crisis or received short-term therapy, while others I worked with on a long-term basis. I incorporate multiple treatment approaches in my work with clients including client-centered, cognitive behavioral therapy, and dialectical behavior therapy.
