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

I have always wanted to be in a helping profession. Growing up, I wanted to be a doctor. In high school, I wanted to be a nurse and even graduated with my nursing assistant certification. I have always been interested in what factors influence people to be who they are and do what they do. In college, I changed my major from nursing to psychology, and it was the best move I could have made because it fit who I am.

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

My personality greatly influences my approach to therapy. There are Type A personality parts to me mixed with being very laid back with a sense of humor. This mixture has shaped me into seeing that people do not fit into neat little boxes but are a mixture of several factors, often seemingly in contrast to each other. My love of the absurd and the ridiculous in my own humor seeps into how I conduct therapy by providing an environment of comfort and acceptance.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

Success is discussed at the very beginning of therapy. It depends on what the client wants to achieve in therapy and what it will look like. We also discuss progress throughout the course of therapy. The definition of success may change over time, and together we will figure out what success will look like and what we need to do to reach that goal. Progress is an individual concept determined by each individual.

Work History

I have worked with people in a variety of settings ranging from outpatient agencies to intensive outpatient/partial hospital programs. My experience has been with clients who seek help for anxiety and depression, stress in their lives, experiences in their past, or problems with the relationships in their lives. No issue is too small, and everyone's issues are important.
