What impact did the scope and/or focus of your education have on your current work as a therapist?

My interest and education as a therapist is ever-expanding. From the beginning of my educational journey to now, I have always had an excitement and keen interest in my field of practice. I find it fascinating to explore how our brains respond to certain thoughts and behaviors. I find it even more fascinating that behavioral changes (some quite simple!) provide the power to promote new neural pathways, better brain chemistry and an overall improved experience of life.

What excites you most about the evolving mental health landscape?

What excites me most about therapeutic treatment is the verifiable evidence of positive brain changes shown in FMRI scans. As my clients and I pursue new strategies and deeper insights, we are empowered knowing our work promotes better overall mental health and emotional well-being. When we understand how to care for ourselves and our brains, we hold the keys to a fulfilling life.

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

As your therapist, I approach our work together with compassion and curiosity. Pursuing relief from burdensome experiences and pain, often means understanding your patterns of coping, adapting and relating. Together we access your inner resources and strengths, creating space for a life that flourishes. I am honored to walk with my clients on their journey toward better mental health.
