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

I have always been a people person. I have appreciated teachers, counselors, coaches who have guided and helped me. I wanted to emulate these professionals. I have been attracted to analytical work and have found using these skills help me working with individuals, couples, and families

What does a first session with you look like?

My initial session is an opportunity for me to get to know the individual and for the individual to get to know me. I spend time getting to know the individual's family of origin, current struggles and what the individual would like to see improve in life. I am a good listener, I ask clarifying questions, I also am transparent and honest if there is something I do not think I can handle.

Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?

A particular theme I have noticed is how the covid 19 virus has changed social interactions. Also, how technology and social media interfere with social dynamics, trust, interpersonal relationships. These are very difficult habits to change given the nature of social dynamics today.
