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

I am compassionate, understanding and empathetic. I am also very patient and calm, often soft spoken. I trust the process, and I move with the individual as they navigate change at their own pace. These parts of who I am embody the person-centered approach that I take to therapy.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I believe in the power of human connection and that the foundation for connecting with other people is connecting with ourselves. To be connected with ourselves means we understand our worth and value, which then gives us the power to be ourselves in any situation. I also believe that being connected with ourselves also means to be grounded. I believe that when we approach other people from a place of groundedness and the awareness of our value and worth, we approach them with a willingness to listen and ability to be ourselves. I believe that being genuinely engaged in the therapeutic relationship means having unconditional positive regard for the person. It also means to have respect, an open heart, provide information and instill hope. I believe all of these things are essential for human connection and for effective treatment and opportunity for healing.

Work History

I am a licensed therapist who has been practicing for six years. I have eleven years of experience working with at risk youth and their families at a non profit agency. I have experience providing individual, group and family therapy. I have received several awards for providing strength based services with excellent model fidelity. I have also spent some time in private practice where I honed in on providing support for young children and their parents. I focus on using mindfulness, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique-Tapping), motivational interviewing and a strength based approach with clients.
