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

Often I hear from others after learning my profession, "Well that makes sense, you are good are talking with others and helping them gain perspective!" I truly love meeting new people and helping them on their journey wherever they are at, and I can guarantee you there will be laughter during our sessions. Often we think therapy has to be serious and sad because of the issues we are dealing with, but laughter and focusing on the good is such a key and important part to my work.

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?

Throughout my work with individuals, couples, and families, I have noticed how everyone wants connection. We all want to have connections with others in one way or another. However, we often lose sight of ourselves in our relationships (romantic, family, friends, work, etc.) and forget who we are as an individual and what our boundaries are and sometimes our identity. No matter what reason a client has come to see me, I make sure to focus part of the treatment on their own identity and mindfulness.

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

In high school, I had a fantastic mentor who inspired me to help others in the same way one day. After my bachelors and first job a preschool, I realized I wanted to work with families in some capacity, which led me to pursuing my degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. Upon graduation and a few years of experience at a variety of companies, I truly enjoy working with all individuals, including couples and families.

Work History

I am thankful for the variety of experiences I have had as a therapist at this point in my career. Early on, I was able to work with at-risk youth and their families in my local country high schools, as well as in the juvenile justice system. As hard as this was at times, it gave me a new appreciation for the work not only the counselors, but any employee I met in this process. I eventually decided that I wanted to pursue my original goal of not only working with adolescents, but also couples and families. I joined a private practice where I was able to work with individuals, couples, and families from all over the city, including military clients. I was also trained in hypnosis which has greatly influenced my belief in the importance of mindfulness for every client I have the privilege of working with.
