What’s the most profound, insightful, or interesting thing you’ve learned as a mental health professional?

The most profound thing that I have learned as a mental health professional is the capacity for growth that we all possess. I have had the privilege to see people who arrive in therapy feeling unrepairably broken and through their courageousness, they lay that bare and begin the process of healing.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

We all bring the experience of the human condition into the work. So, even if I have never directly experienced the same thing, the hurt allows me to recognize sorrow, the joy allows me to witness sparks of light, and living helps me to know that all of us are just out here trying our best to be okay.

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

You have full autonomy over the pace of your healing. It's okay to begin with small steps and let the journey unfold.

Work History

I have had the coolest opportunities to gain experience as a Licensed Therapist & Supervisor, University Administrator, and Educator. At the heart of all of them lies my belief in the development of people and organizations through the cultivation of their personal strengths and unrealized potential. Whether it's working with clients in therapy, creating collaborative solutions with students and their parents, or simply engaging in consultative chats, the presence of authenticity and mutual respect are needed elements in the relationship.
