What does a first session with you look like?

My first session is all information gathering. This will work both ways, as much as I want to learn about you, I want you to feel comfortable asking and learning about me as a person and as your therapist. I hope to begin to build some level of trust and comfortability together.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

I believe knowledge of mental Heath needs to increase, more community based approaches should be implemented in schools or just everyday environments. This will help normalize that mental health concerns happen and there’s nothing wrong with a person for needing a mental health day or further help. I also have strong opinions that mental health should be more affordable for all.

How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

During our first session we will make time to briefly discuss what your therapeutic goals are. I will ask you to take some time prior to our next session to specify those goals and we will explore your reflection during the second or third session if more time is needed. By our third or fourth session we can begin to working together to start to tackle those goals one step at a time.

Work History

My journey in mental health started at a private practice were I had the privilege working with children, teens, adults, and families. While seeking to broaden my horizon in the field I also began working at the Children’s Bereavement Center working groups to help minors through a very emotional time in their young life. Once I completed my schooling, I continued working at the private practice. Having a want to do more, I found myself working at a psychiatric hospital where I had the opportunity to conduct outpatient and inpatient group therapy to promote stability. Additionally, wanting to learn different areas of the company, I transitioned into the admissions department where I conduct clinical intake assessment to help determine proper level of care for psychiatric patients.
