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

It is important for people to have the awareness that therapy can not only assist you for the particular issue that you came in for today but that the skills and insight that you learn can be added to your "toolbox" on this unpredictable journey we call life. Therapy can help you develop an understanding of how and why we do the things we do, can help facilitate better communication between us and those in our lives and is the rare opportunity to be 100 % honest without worrying about the possibility you are being judged.

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

Just as all therapists are not the same I understand that each client is different. I have flexibility in adapting treatment to each individuals characteristics. I do not follow a rigid schedule of treatment, as in a "one size fits all" approach.

What does a first session with you look like?

In a first session with my clients it is essential for me to learn what brought them into therapy at this time in their lives and what they are hoping to achieve from the therapeutic process. The first session is also the time in which I gather pertinent information about the clients history in order to get a picture of different life circumstances that have contributed to shaping them into who they are today. The client also is welcome to ask me any questions they might have about therapy, my experience in the field or how we will proceed together as a team.

Work History

I have been fortunate to have experienced work in many different arenas in the field of mental health. I began my work in a community hospital working with clients who had been diagnosed with mood disorders such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. I worked simultaneously with clients who were hospitalized because their traumatic experiences had made it difficult for them to function productively without support. A large portion of my career has been practicing in the field of substance abuse where I was the clinical director for a privately owned treatment center for over 5 years. I have also always thoroughly enjoyed my work in private practice with a clientele population presenting with varying challenges that brought them in to seek my professional help. I have worked with professional athletes on improving focus, performance and motivation, couples counseling, family therapy as well as individual therapy.
