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 an amazing opportunity to get to know yourself and to find the power of your inner strength. On this journey you will be able to discover your goals that will help lead you to a happier and more fulfilling existence. We will be able to look at the patterns and habits of your life and learn to differentiate what is weighing you down versus what will actually propel you forward. Therapy is about self-reflection using tools such as journaling and mindfulness to understand what you need for yourself. We can accomplish this in part by eliminating unnecessary societal pressure or what others expect of you. By exploring your choices and learning to accept them, we will create an unparalleled sense of peace in your life.

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

Congratulations on taking your first step in joining therapy! I offer you a warm welcome on taking this huge leap and setting an appointment to begin your journey. As we meet on a weekly basis, we will aim to create small, attainable goals to create real change in your life. These goals can be shifted and even changed based on your circumstances at the time. Learning to create flexibility can be a life-long goal that will offer you one of life's most powerful coping skills. Each week we can look and re-evaluate your goals to ensure we are meeting you where are at and we are working within your current potential. Your effort will shine through each week and will empower you to maintain or even surpass your current goals. I look forward to working with you!

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

I believe in the importance of a collaborative experience to create your therapy goals. We typically begin with the one goal that can create a meaningful impact in the present moment. This process involves choosing one of your short-term goals that can be accomplished today. We eventually work to towards your long-term goals or where you see yourself in the future.. These goals are picked based on the your specific needs and reached at the pace that is most comfortable to you. Creating small attainable goals is the key to your everyday success.

Work History

My work history encompasses a broad array of setting including in-patient psychiatry, outpatient psychiatry, medical social work and private practice both in-person and virtually. Throughout my years in practice, I had the opportunity to help those needing assistance through various transitions in their lives. Those areas include life changes such as career change, separation, divorce, moving and finding new paths in their relationships. I aim to guide my clients to help them find coping skills to deal with triggers to navigate anxiety and depressive symptoms that can come as a result of an experience. My practice focuses on Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and learning how our thoughts can affect our emotions and our behavior. I also incorporate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy using a mindfulness approach by learning to accept the present and what you as an individual can and cannot control in your life. Exposure and Response Prevention tremendously helpful to those dealing with anxiety including phobias, panic, anxiety-provoking thoughts or situations as well as OCD. This mode of therapy empowers an individual to engage in a situation rather than avoid it. This empowerment ultimately creates confidence and positivity to be able to cope effectively in any new situation.
