What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I feel a lack of knowledge about the mental health industry in general creates a barrier. In our first few sessions together, we learn about easy to access resources to help you better understand what your diagnosis means and how to effectively treat it. I am happy to help you better understand the process and what to expect. Grounding people with knowledge helps both the therapist and the client.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Learning about a persons life can be a great adventure but also bring on a sense of being overwhelmed. I am here to help you sort out what your biggest challenges are and how to prioritize them. We then work together to customize a treatment plan that best fits you and works with your family and lifestyle.

What impact did the scope and/or focus of your education have on your current work as a therapist?

Learning about how to effectively diagnose and treat the impact of trauma on a persons life was the most profound and eye-opening experience of my 30 years in social work. We all know that our experiences shape who we are but to understand how far reaching that impact truly goes and to be able to successfully separate that from our personalities and individuality was an empowering process which I am fortunate to pass on to my clients.
