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

I spend my earlier years in the medical profession. I found that the most impactful part of that job was relating with the families I encountered daily. I found myself more drawn to being curious about their experience and more intrigued on how a small shift in the system can create major change. I quickly started my studies to get into this field.

What’s the most profound, insightful, or interesting thing you’ve learned as a mental health professional?

The most profound thing I have learned is that people that seek out therapy are the strongest people out there. Society may have different views but those that seek out therapy are bypassing the societal norm and working on their own path. This is so inspiring to me!

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

The best way to determine goals is to explore this with my client. I can't create goals. My most favorite phrase is "I can't tell you how to live your life." My clients know what they want to achieve even if it is difficult to verbalize it. I'm here to help that process as well as help with pushes toward achieving those goals.

Work History

I have worked in private practice since November of 2019. Before that I have been working with individuals and families that have been dealing with addiction and mental health concerns. I have focused on how people communicate and how to translate that to other people within the family system. What I have found is that most families are fully aware of this dynamic but have no idea what to do about it. That's where my work comes in.
