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

I am a person who believes in the power of relationships and the importance of empathy in a therapeutic relationship. I utilize my warmth, humor and curiosity to join with my clients in order to search for meaning and change together in a partnership.

What are some the unique issues faced by clients in your particular field of specialization, in terms of mental health education, care, and/or treatment?

In my work with people facing illness, pain, or new disabilities, I find that many people have experienced grief, loss and frustration but the most common experiences are frustration with the medical system and a sense of feeling unheard. In addition to directly examining and treating reactions to this, I provide a space where people can share their anguish, fears and traumas. I strive to listen and support first. After this, we can move forward together to find peace and healing.

Work History

I have worked in a variety of settings and with a diverse group of clients. These experiences have nurtured my practice and allowed me to hold multiple perspectives and radical acceptance of differing narratives. Although my current work is conducted primarily with adults, I began my career working with children and families. As time has passed, I have continued working with adult/older adults and their families, focusing on issues related to aging parents, grief, chronic illness, loss, life review and disability. I have also worked with clients experiencing significant changes or disruption and focus on how to tame chaos and find satisfaction in life. I have worked with clients who are Deaf and hard of hearing and bring cultural and linguistic awareness. In addition, I have experience with immigration and cultural adaptation for people who are immigrants, refugees and generational differences. Finally, I have worked in medical settings and am currently providing support for medical professionals who are experiencing career crises, COVID 19 related trauma and/or burnout.
