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

I think to some degree there is still a stigma related to therapy. People sometimes shy away from seeking help because they do not want to be perceived as having mental issues or compared to someone they view that has severe mental challenges. I want people to view therapy as preventative. How impactful would it be if we addressed our issues before they become major or severely begin to impact our life. Sometimes a different perspective is what is needed to help us get unstuck.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

I have noticed that people from all walks of life deal with similar struggles such as anxiety, depression, trauma, etc. They feel alone, isolated, and often filled with guilt/shames related to past mistakes. Most of the time they are trying to cope with the stressors/circumstances of life. People just want to be seen and heard. That is why I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between client and therapist. This bond must be cultivated with mutual respect and cooperation.

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

I took a psychology class and an undergrad and really, really liked it. It was also a journey for me to better understand myself and my own struggle with depression. Additionally, as a veteran I saw all too often my peers suffer in silence and try to compartmentalize their pain. Men especially have a hard time asking for the help they need. My desire is to be a support for others in whatever way I can.
