Work History

My experience as a therapist has taken me to diverse settings and introduced me to many different people, from small children to older adults. Along the way, I have learned that no one approach to therapy will work for everyone. Instead, I strive to establish a strong relationship with my clients by meeting them where they are. Together, we explore the unique challenges that brought them to therapy. Together, we zero in on desired therapeutic goals and lay out a fresh path toward positive change. My recent work has focused on supporting adults struggling with co-occurring mental health and substance use challenges. These times of Covid have left people more stressed than ever. Some have turned to unhealthy choices as a means to cope. I have worked with them to develop insight into how their present challenges may be fueling their substance abuse. The one aspect of my work that remains unchanged, no matter who sits opposite me in therapy, is my strong desire to fill each and every session with genuine empathy. From this foundation, I strive to create a safe space, a place of hope, for those who seek my help. I am a therapist at Octave, a behavioral health practice creating a new standard for mental health care that’s both high-quality and accessible.
