In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

I have personally experienced how a sense of community can help in various situations. Feeling as if one belongs and can relate to one another, can help through difficult transitions. I have witnessed that lack of sufficient communication can disrupt and hinder any relationship; and therefore communication is key to successful interpersonal relationships.

What does a first session with you look like?

After completing initial paperwork, the first session would entail gaining some background history and developing a treatment plan together.

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

My personality of being a very organized, loyal and caring individual helps guide my approach in therapy in regards to helping develop a treatment plan with specific goals to work on while having someone there to help guide you and knowing that you are not alone.

Work History

I have experience working with various populations, but in particular working with families going through difficult transitions such as marital concerns, custody disputes, separations and/or divorce. These transitions can entail needing conflict resolutions, trauma specialist and/or anger management while not only working on oneself but working on better relationships with one's partner, spouse and/or children. I have experience working with all ages as well as working in forensic populations and in a group practice with individuals, couples and families with various severe mental health diagnosis.
