In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

I am a very direct person with a very dry sense of humor, and I think this has absolutely shaped my approach to therapy. I am very directive with my clients, and prefer transparency to smoke and mirrors when it comes to therapeutic interventions. Treatment for anxiety is tough, so I really value humor in my approach is well - if we can't laugh at ourselves, things can seem awfully bleak!

How does collaboration with other providers play into your work?

I highly value collaboration with other providers. If you've got psychiatrists, other speciality therapists, doctors, or anyone else providing care, it's crucial that we are in touch. I like to think of it like we are all on our own separate pages of your story, but ultimately want to ensure that we're in the same book, working towards the same happy ending.

What does a first session with you look like?

Our first session is likely to be the most structured. I will be doing a comprehensive intake evaluation to help identify an appropriate diagnosis, and to gather information about your history, as well as how the presenting problems are impacting your current life. Together, we'll identify some broad goals for treatment and develop a general treatment plan. I will also evaluate for risk and help you to develop a crisis management plan. If, for whatever reason, we mutually determine that working together is not the right fit, I will provide you with appropriate resources to help you reach your goals.

Work History

I have worked in just about every setting there is - community-based, hospital-based, outpatient, private practice, virtually and in-person. The bulk of my experience has been with adolescents and young adults. My specialties sort of happened by chance - early on in my career, I was assigned to a lot of clients struggling with anxiety. The more I worked with them, the more I researched to be able to better help them, and the more I learned, the more I started to request those clients.
