What is your style/approach to therapy?

I truly approach therapy as, meeting clients where they are, meaning engaging the client where they are versus telling them how and where to be. This is a process, that I realize is not the same for each client. My treatment approach may be a combination of cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic, and rational emotive counseling. I tailor my counseling style to each individual's unique situation. I am a very interactive, and kind person with a non-judgmental attitude.

What does a first session with you look like?

The first therapy session is a great opportunity to start rapport building; getting to know each other, and exploring what you would like to gain from this process. I would like to talk about things that have been successes for you and different approaches that you may have used in the past. Gaining relevant background information is very imperative. I will walk you through this process, as I am very aware that there may be some feelings of uneasiness in the beginning as we are getting to know each other.

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

I have always received great satisfaction from knowing that I have positively impacted someone's life or have been the person that have helped them to get to the place they want to be. From a young child until now, I have always helped others in some type of capacity. I love seeing others succeed in life, and just being overall happy. It takes a special kind of person to listen and with no judgement. I know that I am equipped to be a therapist.

Work History

As a social worker for over 10 years, I have had the pleasure of working with many populations with a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, family issues, childhood trauma, relationship issues, grief/loss issues, anger, stress, and self-esteem. I began my experience through working with children in the foster care system. During this time, I also provided services to both children and their families including adjustment to new environments, grief surrounding separation of families, and behavioral issues. I continued my work with children and families through serving as a Military and Family Life Consultant, where I provided counseling to service members and their dependents, addressing the unique challenges of military life. I continue to serve members of the military through my work as a therapist with the Navy. As a therapist, I have also had the pleasure of providing counseling services to individuals in nursing facilities. I provided interventions to address end of life issues, depression, stress, anxiety, and isolation.
