I approach therapy as an open, safe, and comfortable place for clients.

My Therapy Style

I approach therapy as an open, safe, and comfortable place for clients. I immediately work on creating a good client-therapist bond. I encourage open communication and collaborative work toward creating goals. I ask clients, as part of therapy and to increase the completion of goals, to do the work we discuss outside of therapy. I ask for a commitment from them to do the work otherwise the process is slower and the chance of reaching goals is decreased.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I had wanted to work with people but was not sure how. During a time in life when I could and decided to make a change I went back to school for my master's with the goal of becoming a marriage, couple, and individual therapist. As a new career in my forties, I have found a strong dedication to assisting my clients to find better ways of coping and learning new ways to handle difficult situations.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy time with my family, dogs, traveling, gardening, and reading.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I practice self-care by knowing my limits. I have learned how many clients I can handle in a week or a day to not cause burnout.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by walking, getting good sleep and having some time for myself.

Do you have any pets?

I currently have two dogs, a Snoodle and a mini schnauzer. I am not sure I have a favorite story but truly enjoy watching them enjoy themselves
