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

I always knew I wanted to help others. I had a positive experience with a therapist during my teen years and it was this experience that inspired me to become a therapist.

In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?

Personality plays a strong role as it is a part of who we are. Personality impacts whether a client and therapist are a good match. My personality reflects the following qualities: informal/laid back, collaborative, direct/honest, humorous, empathic, and nurturing.

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

Therapy is your space. I provide guidance and support but strongly encourage my client's to drive sessions and treatment planning. Goals identified need to make sense for you and your life.
