What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?
Throughout my childhood, I felt a variety of confusing emotions, including sadness, nervousness, and fear that led me to seek therapy for myself. I sought to gain insight and understanding for myself. I worked toward healing my internal world (i.e., self-compassion, self-acceptance, self-actualization) and learning to voice what I needed in my external world (i.e., in my relationships, career, etc.). My wound became a map to becoming a therapist to help others find their inner strengths and voices to heal and grow. My passion is in empowering others to overcome the internal and external oppressive factors affecting their ability to grow, be fulfilled, and be happy in their lives no matter what has happened, what is happening, and what could happen. Time will not heal all wounds, but you can start to heal; you will see some scars, and you can grow from those wounds.
What is your style/approach to therapy?
Therapy starts with a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic environment to facilitate change, healing, and growth. My approach is integrative of various modalities and incorporates nature-based approaches to provide you with the tools needed for change in your wellness landscape. I am here to help you find and use your internal voice to feel heard and seen. Together, we will find your strengths and learn to utilize them to help you grow. We will work collaboratively to build insight into your past and your internal and external worlds and help you take committed actions to overcome life challenges.
