What is your style/approach to therapy?

I have a pretty simplistic approach and speak to my clients the same way I would anyone else. My perspective is that everyone is carrying pain that at times, manifests itself in maladaptive ways. My hope is to assist you in identifying the ways in which your pain manifests itself and help you build more positive ways of coping, processing, and healing.

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

Therapy is a collaborative process! You are the expert on yourself and your life, so if you feel as though there’s something you’d like to work on, we will! I am here to help you gain insight into your behavioral patterns and how your background has influenced your current behavior, but therapy is about YOU and what you hope to see!

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

I believe humans are inherently good, and it is our life experiences that cause us to act in negative ways as a way of coping. This helps me to be nonjudgmental, supportive, and compassionate toward my clients regardless of the circumstances or past transgressions. When we are hurting, we try to mitigate that pain in whatever way we know, and sometimes those ways aren’t always beneficial. I feel it is important for clients to gain self compassion and self forgiveness in order to be their best selves.

Work History

I’ve spent a number of years in various clinical settings, which has helped me connect with various clients. I’ve worked at a rape crisis and domestic violence center assisting survivors, and have also worked with incarcerated individuals to assist them in overcoming challenges and help them live more prosocial lives. I have also worked with substance use populations and supported these clients in navigating recovery. I’ve worked with both men and women, including young adults and adults.
