What would be important for someone to know about working with you?

When working with me, it's important to know that sometimes we have to have hard conversations. I am a very positive therapist, but I use compassionate confrontation frequently in order to challenge thought processes. I can be very direct in our conversations and will not beat around the bush.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

I wish people knew that it doesn't have to be scary. I know it seems like it sometimes, telling a stranger all about your feelings is a weird thing to do. However, the truth is you don't have to tell us anything you don't want to. You can call and have a commitment free phone call for 15 minutes to see if you like the person or get a good vibe from them. Even after you start going to therapy, you don't have to share everything right away! Wait until you build up the trust if that's what you want. You are really in the driver seat!

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

Choosing therapy goals is very important. You want to make sure your goals align with what you need. When we make goals together, it will be very collaborative. At the end of the second session, we will make treatment goals together. I will present to you what I have observed and make suggestions, and I will also ask you to make suggestions as well. We will merge our ideas together to make realistic goals for you so that you feel confident in the direction therapy is going.

Work History

I have been practicing since 2014. I started in grad school by working with toddlers, which was terrifying for a therapist in training. I continued on this path for about five years, working with kids and adolescents that were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, ADHD, adjustment disorder, adoption issues, and more. I enjoy working with children and their families. Including siblings and important parental figures as supports in therapy can be very beneficial. I also have been working with adults in individual and couples therapy for the past eight years. I really enjoy supporting individuals working through anxiety, depression, adjustment to life changes, work stressors, familial issues, relationship issues, and trauma.
