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

I believe that everyone possesses the innate power to take ownership and responsibility of their life. My goal in working together is to help you to take responsibility and ownership of your life. I always believe that you are the teacher and you truly have the answers to live the life that you are seeking. My role is to help support you, teach you skills to unearth your intrinsic knowledge, and provide guidance in your therapeutic journey. You may be wondering if I have any expectations for therapy. My only expectation is that you commit to your growth because you deserve to transcend into that happy, peaceful, successful version of yourself that you desire.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have been helping individuals accomplish their personal transformation by applying three simple concepts: Awareness, Alignment, and Action. Awareness builds understanding about your beliefs that guide your actions. Alignment helps you to sync with your authenticity and personal beliefs about happiness. Lastly, action allows you to use the wisdom from your awareness and alignment to actively participate in the creation of your life.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

If you are here, I can only imagine the frustration you feel about not being able to be in charge of your life. What's even more upsetting is that the uncertainty only intensifies feelings of sadness and frustration about what the future holds for you. I truly understand and I want to help you in this new journey. Let me ask you a question, what is scarier than a future that does not look promising? I believe it is staying in the same uncomfortable place due to fear. Like any first step you take it can be tremendously nerve-racking. However, the first step is creating the action you need to jumpstart your transformation. Yes, therapy can be scary, challenging, and even deeply introspective. But, the benefit about starting therapy is that it allows you to get to know the person you will be spending the rest of your life with, YOU. Stop doubting yourself. You have already taken the first step by seeking support. Continue putting yourself first and creating a path that leads you to the life that you desire.

Work History

I am trained and experienced in diagnosing mental health disorders and providing psychotherapy for individuals who have experienced trauma, life stressors,  depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and self-esteem issues. I also work with couples to address communication issues, relational stress, and collaboration on joint goals. As a therapist I have worked for county mental health helping individuals with moderate to severe mental illness all the way to private practice with helping individuals gain mental wellness.  In my career I have learned the true resiliency of human nature and our ability to heal from past wounds.
