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

Honestly? I wanted to make sense of my crazy childhood by learning more about my family and about myself, and how to cope and adapt. Over time, I became more and more interested in how people think, feel, and react. I was a supportive friend, with empathy and genuine interest in their well-being. I wanted to hone in on all of that and use that to help others.

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

I believe in being authentic. I adhere to ethical guidelines and maintain boundaries, but I believe in being genuine in my responses to what my clients have to say: and what I mean by that is that I will acknowledge what you have told me in an authentic and empathetic manner, versus a robotic approach. I imagine that, as you are reaching out, you likely want to talk to a human, so I'm going to act like one. I feel to do anything otherwise could be invalidating for you. Also, I have a silly sense of humor, and I am difficult to offend.

Work History

I am experienced working with children, adolescents, and adults, focusing primarily on CBT treatment interventions and person-centered counseling techniques, allowing for the client to lead the sessions in a sense and develop a feeling of empowerment and internal locus of control. I also like to help clients to reframe interpretations of situations in order to improve one’s well-being. I specialize in anxiety, depression, ADHD, domestic abuse, and alternative lifestyles.
