What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I think the biggest barrier today for people seeking mental healthcare is stigma. Therapy often gets a bad rap due to media and sometimes the comments made by family members or friends. Often times going to therapy means that there is something "wrong" with you or that you need to be "fixed." If mental healthcare was presented and talked about in the same way the traditional medical healthcare was, I believe a lot of the stigma would fall away. Mental health is connected to our physical health and deserves just as much attention and importance.

What does a first session with you look like?

For our first session, we would focus on you getting to know me, and I getting to know you. I will be open to address any questions or concerns that you may have and I will ask you what has brought you to therapy. We can begin with talking about your past and key life events that have led up until your present or start by focusing on the here and now. You may already know what therapy method you would like for me to use as we work together. If that is the case, I am more than happy to provide you with the type of therapy service that you would like.

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

If you're ready to work for change and insight, I'll be ready to walk alongside you every step of the way! Accepting or believing that there is a problem or challenge is the first step on the journey towards working on the most important project in your life; yourself. Asking for help is never easy so I acknowledge the courage that it takes to reach out. If you are looking for a judgment free zone to explore your thoughts and feelings, you've come to the right place. I look forward to helping you reach your goals and discover your inner strengths.

Work History

From 2014-2015 I interned at an elementary school as a school counselor where I developed my skills utilizing art and storytelling in the therapy process. From 2015-2016 I interned for a local county as an administrative assistant in the behavioral health department where I developed my skills introducing clients to the therapy process and created programs for the community. From 2016-2019 I worked for a local county in the behavioral health department as a clinical therapist and case manager where I developed my skills providing treatment for clients dealing with trauma and teaching clients how to be self aware of their thoughts and feelings. In 2020 I worked for a private agency as a clinical therapist where I developed my skills utilizing positive psychology in sessions with clients. From 2020-2022 I worked in the technology field as a mental health therapist and as a private contractor for a group practice. I have been in private practice since 2020.
