What self-care techniques or activities do you do?
I have recently become more involved in meditation. I also really love yoga and cooking!
What made you become a therapist?
I became a therapist because I have always enjoyed helping others. I truly love learning about people’s lives and cultures. I don’t see struggle as a negative, I have always seen it as an opportunity for growth. It is so empowering to help people make a breakthrough.
What are your specialties?
I specialize in client’s who are struggling with life transitions. Specifically, young adults who are dealing with change after high school, college, or the professional world. I also work with people who struggle with anxiety and depression.
Did you have a career before becoming a therapist?
I have always been a therapist!
Why do you believe that counseling can help?
Counseling is a unique opportunity for self-exploration. It is dedicated time for yourself to work though whatever you need at that time. Everyone deserves self-care, and therapy is one of the best forms of that!
Why is it important to seek counseling?
Unfortunately, there is a stigma associated with mental health. However, a large percentage of our population struggles with various mental health issues. It is so important to seek the help you need because your wellbeing is priority. I personally think that therapy doesn’t have to be sought out because something is “wrong”, it can simply be an opportunity for you to learn more about yourself and to learn more tools.
