What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

Honesty, openness, transparency, and trust are all keys to the therapeutic relationship. If these components are not ingrained in the relationship, then therapy would not be useful for the client. Real change is on the other side of our fears, and being afraid keeps us from being honest, open, transparent, and trusting. Therefore, our clients would not be able to change, which negates the reason for coming to therapy.

What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

I want the best for you. Everything I do, is to help you get to where you want to be. With that being said, I will empathize with, challenge, and push you towards greatness. It is not always going to easy, but I am going to do everything I can to help you reach your full potential. I am here for you! Let’s work together to help you become the best you, you can be!

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

The one thing that I wish people knew about therapy is that it is that you get out of it, what you put into it. I find that some individuals are skeptical about and distrust the process of therapy. It is my belief that if you work hard and give it your all, you will get the healing you are looking for and so deserve. Also to not forget that therapy, just like anything else is a process. Which means that it will take time and it may cause discomfort and pain. Don't let the time, lack of comfortability, or pain, keep you from the experience that can change your life for the better.

Work History

Life experiences, education, and career choices have all played a role in preparation of the work we will do together. As a LCSW I have knowledge base in multiple spectrums of mental health systems such as; mental health hospitals, school systems, group homes, and community mobile crisis. You name it, I've seen it. Working with individuals of various ages, cultures, and range of mental health needs, is something I have done for many years. In the mental health hospital setting, I provided therapy, case management, and discharge planning for children (5-12), adolescents (13-17) adults (18-65), and geriatrics (66 and up). Their level of mental Illness all different, most were severe, others were mild to moderate. Just as with the mental health hospitals, the mobile crisis team provided assessment and therapy to those who were suffering with more moderate to sever mental health issues. I am used to helping people with severe mental health issues. There is no doubt in my mind that I can help you, if you give me the opportunity. I look forward to working with you!
