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 a safe place for you. You can share everything you want or need to. All that you share is safe. Nothing you share with your therapist will be shared with others.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Honesty is the most important part of the therapeutic relationship. Honesty between a client and therapist allows for greater understanding of concerns, which then allows for better therapy, because it is aimed at the actual issues involved.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

When I was younger, I had the benefit of working with a therapist who helped change the course of my family, by helping us help ourselves. This inspired me to want to do the same for others. I wanted to be able to pay forward the gift that that therapist gave to my family.

Work History

My background has been focused around working with three general populations.  The first population are families and couples.  When working with this population, I work with how the couple or family members relate to each other, and help people understand what others are trying to say.  This is because communication is often a significant issue within the couple or family.  The second population are those with a history of substance use and trauma.  With this population, I like to explore the history and then help to develop healthy coping skills for handling life on life's terms.  Finally, the third population are those suffering with anger issues.  For this population, we try and look at anger patterns, and learn how to break them and teach how to express things in a healthier way.
