How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

When a client I am working with is seeing other providers as well, I like to keep in touch with them to make sure we are all on the same page and not providing conflicting treatment or advice. It can often be confusing to clients when one provider is suggesting to try a new skill, but their other provider is telling them to do the complete opposite!

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success in therapy does not always mean life will be perfect after treatment. As I tell my clients, I cannot make it so that they will never have depression, anxiety, or any other mental health condition again in their life. Our goal is that the next time those things come up for them, they are able to take a step back and say " I know what this is, I've been here before, and I can handle it." When this happens and they are able to manage life's stressors and problems on their own, that is success.

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

I originally wanted to work for the FBI as a behavioral analyst, but a knee injury prevented those dreams from coming true. I decided to pursue my master's degree in counseling, so that I could have greater career options over a degree in forensic psychology. I ended up falling in love with being a counselor, and with the specialties of counseling I originally had no interest in!
