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 would set aside their fears and be open to how healing therapy can be. I understand the fear of being vulnerable to someone you barely know, but that fear has a short life span and diminishes as sessions move forward. Don’t let that brief time of being uncomfortable or afraid impede your goals and gain a better quality of life.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

The key component to a therapeutic relationship is rapport. As I continue to work in the mental health field, I noticed that rapport is necessary when working with clients. Once a connection is established, trust and other vital factors such as openness and comfortability follow. If rapport is not present, it makes it difficult for the other traits to emerge. I like to create an atmosphere where clients can feel comfortable being themselves and establish a teamwork environment to work on presenting issues together.

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

It is important for future clients to know how dedicated and passionate I am working as a therapist. I enjoy my career and do not consider this as a job but more as a life’s purpose. I love getting to know my clients and being able to help them to the best of my ability and knowledge. I work in a collaborative style, working with the patient to achieve goals and identifying obstacles that could hinder this.
