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

In all I have ever done in my life, both personally and professionally, the single greatest lesson I have learned in helping others is to just be yourself. My personality is very much in alignment with my approach to therapy: welcoming and accepting. I have been told many times my voice is calming and my sense of humor brings ease to difficult situations and conversations. Life is difficult at times, seeking help is one of the most courageous acts one can embark on so it is my intention to put you at ease, provide comfort, and empower you to transform your pain into something meaningful. I welcome you where you are and join you in your healing.

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

My journey to becoming a social worker began at a very young age watching my father wake up at 5am every morning to leave for work, a job that he truly loved and gave all his dedication to for more than 30 years. A school social worker in an urban city, my father worked tirelessly to ensure that the children and families he worked with received the services and supports they needed in order to have a positive, safe, and successful educational experience. As a child, it was clear to me that working with people and helping them was something more than just a job but a calling. Seeing how much my father loved his work only solidified my desire to become a social worker and I have never waivered from that decision. Little did I know, that my path to becoming a therapist would be a culmination of many personal and professional experiences over time. My own path of healing has looked much like the many individuals who have come seeking help and who have so bravely allowed me to join them in their journey of healing and recovery. Through my own experiences and in working with people from all walks of life, I have come to understand that healing is a deeply profound process that looks and feels differently for each person. The invitation to join someone in that journey is at the heart of my work.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

My approach to therapy is very much based on the values and principles of the social work profession. I strongly believe in meeting the client where they are and aligning with them as they navigate the process of healing. Assessment begins at the first session and continues throughout the treatment process in order to guide and inform treatment planning in collaboration with the client. In determining treatment goals with the client, I will use an eclectic approach to treatment interventions which seek to increase self-awareness, gaining new understanding/knowledge, and developing individual interventions to meet the goals of the client. I take a strengths-based perspective and look for underlying needs when considering treatment interventions always encouraging the client’s own self-determination and resiliency. I fundamentally believe that therapy is most beneficial and healing when there is a strong connection with the client and therefore work to build an experience where a person feels heard and understood.
