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

I had my first experience with a therapist in elementary school. My school counselor was also a therapist and recognized that I had an eating disorder before anyone else. She started meeting with me weekly and provided essential information for my parents. I am so thankful for her help and once I knew that could be a profession, I never wanted to do anything else. I had always loved helping people and making a career out of it is extremely fulfilling.

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

I think it's brave and admirable to reach out for help. Realizing you could benefit from therapy is huge and so is taking it further and turning that recognition into action and seeking an appointment! I want you to know that I would be honored to be able to help you in your growth journey. I also know that not every therapist is a good fit, so if I am not the right fit for you, I want you to keep looking until you do find the right one. Having someone in your circle of friends/family who listens and cares about you is fantastic. Finding a good therapist can also be amazing. I am not emotionally entangled in your life and am therefore able to be more unbiased. Your educational, career, and personal choices don't impact me the way they do your friends and family. My only goal is to help you achieve your goals of personal growth/relief. I like to utilize humor in my sessions, listen intently, and provide feedback. Most sessions are about how we work together to help you get to where you want to be. I don't just listen and never talk, I also give you time and space to say what you want and need to say. We are a team, but unlike others you may team up with in your life, this one is all about only helping you!

What does a first session with you look like?

The first session or first few sessions may not be life altering, but they are important to assess current status and needs. Don't think of the first few sessions as a waste, but rather as a way for the therapist to see a much larger picture and start from a much more effective place. The first session is important for information gathering, but should also be a time to find a connection. Those first few sessions lay the groundwork for important work later on that hopefully leads to valuable insights and development of successful coping strategies.
