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

I started on my road to becoming a therapist when I had the opportunity talking to vets who had experienced trauma. Some were Vietnam veterans who had never spoken about their experiences up til then. My heart went out to them, and I became a therapist to better learn how to serve them, and other people who have experienced trauma, and to others who were experiencing pain and uncertainty. My experiences opened up a path to helping people in many different situations. Because of my life and my professional experiences I also began working with people facing difficult transitions, depression, anxiety, dealing with fears and hopelessness, among other issues. I am grateful for this journey and look forward to more travel along the road of healing!

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

What I would like for you to know is that I offer a warm, non-judgmental space for you to be heard, to bear witness and to assist you in your healing. I offer respect, aim to understand, and when appropriate a sense of humor to lighten up the load.

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

Going to therapy does not indicate there is something wrong with you, rather, the thing to be explored is perhaps, what HAPPENED to you? I am not the expert on you, YOU ARE! My role is to be supportive, hear your story and reflective of what I hear from you. We all need someone to really listen to us, with undivided attention. I offer that.
