What is your style/approach to therapy?

Therapy is a process of healing and self-actualization. Therapy starts with building a trusting relationship between the client and therapist as the foundation for personal growth. This process should be unique to every client and it is my responsibility as a therapist to hold up a mirror through which clients can discover a deeper sense of self-awareness and acceptance.

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

I had a very positive experience with therapy as an adolescent and have always been fascinated by psychology and the human experience. After college, I knew that I wanted to work with people and apply my academic background in religion and philosophy to a practice that was centered around providing a nurturing environment for healing and personal growth.

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

There are a combination of factors that contribute to barriers that prevent people from finding appropriate mental health care. Stigma, logistical and financial barriers, and lack of access are all components of people's daily lives that can often become obstacles to seeking care. It is my hope to be available, flexible, and accepting of all clients in their search for support and self-discovery.

Work History

Supervised by: Amy Gottheimer, LCSW, 079136. Before moving into a private practice setting, my previous experience includes providing social-emotional and mental health support in an early education setting. In that role, I developed a social-emotional learning (SEL) curriculum, held individual and group therapy sessions for students, and implemented mindfulness practices in an after-school program. I also developed a chess-based SEL program. Prior to pursuing a degree in Social Work, I worked as an elementary school teacher teaching chess as a curricular course as well as coaching a competitive scholastic chess team.
