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

My personal experiences have influenced my work with clients in many ways. Due to my personal experiences I feel that I have greater empathy for what my clients are experiencing. I understand and recognize that change is both hard and scary but also strengthening and sometimes necessary. My personal experiences have allowed me to build great rapport with my clients which allows them to have a safe space where they can be open and honest.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have an eclectic approach where I utilize CBT, Solution Focused and Person-Centered Therapy. I utilize many other approaches when appropriate such as DBT, Family Systems and Motivational Interviewing.

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

Something that is important for someone to know about working with me is I appreciate feedback as feedback allows one to grow professionally. If something I said or did not say troubles you I encourage you to bring it to my attention. If you enjoyed the way a session went because of a certain approach, technique, etc. I invite you to also give that as well.

Work History

I began my internship at a non-profit where I provided individual and family therapy to children and parents in their home. Within the same non-profit I was hired on as a Mental Health Clinician and provided individual therapy to students at their school sites who met criteria for an Emotional Disturbance (ED). I then moved on to an outpatient setting. Here I provided individual, group, and family therapy to children, adolescents and adults. While working in this outpatient program I also provided parenting classes. A majority of my work has been with County Mental Health where I am currently working. With County Mental Health I have provided both direct and indirect services to children, adolescents and adults in both an individual and family setting. I am no stranger when it comes to diagnosis as I have worked with an array of them such as, but not limited to anxiety, depression, PTSD and personality and attachment disorders.
