How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Goals are very important and tend to be the backbone of the work we do together. I like to see first if you have anything in mind, maybe a goal that has carried over from a past therapy experience. Then I like to let you know different ways we can go about it - usually tackling short term solutions as we continue down the road toward more long term ones. I like leaving you with something to think about each session until the next time we meet, so we can slowly chip away at the long term goal.

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

Simply put: this is your time and not mine. I want to know how the process is going for you and am open to feedback. I do not know it all by any means and want to grow with you. If a past therapist shared a technique that worked for you? Awesome, we can incorporate it. If you hate receiving homework? We will get rid of it. I want to walk along side of you through your journey, not force you down a specific path.

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

We all come into the work looking through different lenses which play a big role in how we connect and relate to others. I had a wonderful opportunity working in the nonprofit sector for many years and believe this absolutely shapes my worldview. We are all living with different social determinants (homelessness, domestic violence, medical conditions, etc.) and these not only alter our lens but offer a unique viewpoint into our concerns and work through the therapeutic process.

Work History

I am a psychotherapist residing in Georgia with experience in both private practice and working with nonprofit organizations. In recent years, my practice has evolved to focus on not only mental health alone, but how social determinants such as medical ailments and trauma from the pandemic have impacted our daily lives. Initially, I will provide you with a comprehensive evaluation and if we choose to work together, we will be partners in your therapeutic journey.   I received my masters in mental health counseling from Brooklyn College and have worked in various settings with different populations in New York, California, and Georgia.
