In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

My personal struggle with depression and anxiety very much influences my work with clients. I believe I am able to emphasize on a different level, because I have been a client myself.

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

There is still so much stigma around mental health issues. I have seen improvement, especially with the pandemic: people seem to be more open about struggling and more willing than ever to engage. But, I think there is still this shame and secretive nature for many people when it comes to seeking professional help for their mental health.

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

I wish people would realize that the therapist is also human, with flaws and problems of their own. They are not there to judge you- they genuinely want to help and even though it’s scary to open up, participating in therapy can make such a tremendous difference in your life.

Work History

I completed my graduate internship at an area college counseling center, and my first professional therapist job was at an urban mental health clinic. There, I worked with clients who had severe mental illness and faced other challenges such as substance abuse and poverty. After 3 years in the clinic, I gave birth to my son and took a year off to be at home. Then, I opened my own practice (10 years ago). I work with mostly middle class clients in a suburban area. The issues that are most frequent, and therefore specialties of mine, include: anxiety, depression and grief/loss. I have also been fortunate to work with women at all stages of their motherhood journeys. I specialize in women/couples facing infertility issues and new mothers with postpartum mood disorders and anxiety.
