I intend to provide a safe and grounded space where you can process your vulnerabilities, build insight, solve problems, and achieve balance.

My Therapy Style

My approach is to lead with curiosity, compassion, and personal experience to help navigate, make sense, and explore new coping strategies and perspectives. The tools that once worked may no longer serve you. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to achieving your goals and because I believe effective therapy takes collaborative effort, we'll work together to discover and develop effective techniques specifically tailored for your needs. I intend to provide a safe and grounded space where you can process your vulnerabilities, build insight, solve problems, and achieve balance. I want to be a vehicle in helping you become unstuck.

Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Before becoming a mental health professional, I was in a completely different industry. Despite the stability it offered, I often found myself asking, “Is this it?” I felt a longing for something more meaningful—a career that would allow me to connect with others on a deeper level and make a real difference. I’ve always had a strong desire to give back to society, and this feeling only grew stronger over time. I realized that I wanted my work to have a positive impact on people’s lives. This led me to the field of mental health.

What are your interests outside of work?

Being outdoors, hiking, biking, digging for music (awkwardly dancing), traveling, searching for delicious food, and spending quality time with loved ones.

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

One daily ritual that greatly supports my mental and emotional well-being is taking a walk outside. Given that my work often keeps me indoors, this simple act of stepping out into the open air serves as a refreshing break.

During these walks, I indulge in my passion for music. I love digging for new tunes, exploring different genres, and uncovering hidden musical gems. Music has a profound impact on my mood and mindset, and discovering a new song or artist feels like unearthing treasure.

This combination of walking outdoors and immersing myself in music creates a perfect harmony that nourishes my soul, clears my mind, and uplifts my spirits. It’s my daily dose of serenity amidst the hustle and bustle of life. So, no matter how busy the day gets, I make sure to take this time for myself - it’s my way of maintaining a healthy balance between work and well-being.

What book have you read more than once?

I've read The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein at multiple stages of my life. As a child, it was a simple story about a tree’s selfless love. As an adult, it became a poignant tale of unconditional love and the delicate balance of give-and-take in relationships. Now as a psychotherapist, I see themes of poor boundaries, an imbalance of give-and-take in relationships, and the importance of self-care. It’s crucial to understand that while giving and caring for others is important, it should not come at the cost of one’s well-being.
