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

I've known what it feels like to be marginalized and victimized. I chose to work in this field after being inspired by those who helped me overcome. I feel honored to provide support to others going through any kind of hardship.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I truly believe, as a therapist and person, that everyone deserves to be listened to. When I meet someone, or even if I'm just passing them by, I hold the values of respect, truth, and kindness above all others. I feel that so many challenges in life can be avoided or overcome by a stance of positive regard and respect between people.

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

A huge barrier for seeking care is feeling judged. Whether it's wondering would loved one's in someone's life might think or say if they found out, wondering what the therapist might think or say, or the negative messages one says to themselves when they consider asking for help, there are many obstacles that arise. Pushing past all the judgement one anticipates, or directly receives, and reaching out is a significant feat that I always commend. That is sometimes the most difficult step to healing.

Work History

I've been practicing as a therapist for 10 years. I've had the privilege of working with a multitude of individuals and families, of many backgrounds, cultures, and experiences. I've worked successfully to help people with who are hurting or seeking help, whether it is with grief and loss, adjusting to traumatic or significant life events, self-confidence, stress, anxiety, anger problems, sleep issues, parenting, or stage of life changes. Whether serving children, teenagers, adults, or older adults, I enjoy helping others, and enjoy even more so seeing people grow on their journeys' of realizing their best selves.
