What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?
My path was anything but traditional. I honestly never envisioned myself as a psychologist/therapist. But over time and working in different jobs, I found myself on that exact path. From training and working in martial arts (which taught tenacity, perseverance, integrity) to having a coffee house for about two years, I was starting to pivot into the counseling and therapy world. I became an LPC and eventually became licensed while pursuing a Master and Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. It was a process of doing different things and eventually finding my own way in a field that I am very passionate about and one that brings me joy.
In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?
I think that we all have something to offer through our own personal experiences. It's what makes us all human and feel connected to one another. I have had my share of ups and downs - two bad marriages, family issues, and transitioning from a very small town to NYC by myself. But through all of my experiences, I have found a silver lining and have become more resilient. I bring this to therapy as well as a place to for people to feel safe, heard, and seen so they can move through their struggles and see and experience the silver linings as well and feel hopeful about their future.
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 find that a common and recurring theme in the clients I work with is a struggle to communicate. Not only do they struggle to have healthy communication, they often don't have the skills to do that. This is because they were never taught how to communicate in ways that are constructive and healthy. So in the beginning it's getting a better understanding of how they are communicating, where they learned to communicate that way, and helping them to learn new skills and strategies while processing their feelings that are coming up.

Throughout my education, I have had the opportunity to work in diverse settings (psychiatric hospital, drug and alcohol facility, primary care setting in a socially and economically diverse community. These clinical experiences along with my work in a private practice setting over the span of 16 plus years has provided me the opportunity to focus on working with couples and individuals who are struggling in their relationship or marriage, going through a life transition (having a child, job change, divorce, or separation). As a psychologist, I describe myself as collaborative, integrative, client focused, and forward thinking. My energy and passion for my work is driven by wanting to help people 'run towards life' and be an active participant in their life, not a passive bystander. Not sure if I can help? I offer a free 20 minute virtual consult to answer any questions you have and to learn a bit more about why you are seeking therapy.
