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

I was fascinated at a young age by Marilyn Monroe or Norma Jean Baker; I did a thesis paper in the eighth grade on her. I wanted to know why people made the choices that they did in their life.; I was constantly absorbed in literature that gave me glimpses of the elusive inner workings of other's brains.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

Two things excite me about mental health: Mindfulness, evidenced in our behavioral interventions and how our past experiences inform our present existence. The increasing awareness of "what happened to her versus what is wrong with her" or trauma informed dialogue in the society has allowed for normalization of accessing therapy. The third wave of behaviorism incorporating behavioral methods not just cognitive; what we do is our values on display.

Work History

I received my MA in counseling in 2002. I immediately went to work in a group practice serving co-occurring disorders in substance abuse and mental health. I went back to school for a PhD in psychology focusing on psychophysiology and I have never stopped learning even if I did not finish the degree. I have continued to be fascinated by the brain and have enjoyed helping people reach their potential.
