Have you ever felt overwhelmed by life events, but hesitated to reach out for help because your challenges don’t seem serious enough to involve a mental health professional? You’re not alone, many people think of therapy as a solution for those in crisis – but mental healthcare is for everyone! As a graduate student intern, I have experience working with diverse clients to build skills and habits that support healthy cognition, improve relationships, and tackle life’s challenges empowered by a positive self-image. I would love the opportunity to share, learn, and grow with you as well.
As a graduate intern, I have had the opportunity to witness the therapeutic benefits of changing negative patterns of thought and behavior, which can lead to acceptance of self and a better ability to successfully navigate moment-to-moment events and emotions as well as enhance the quality of relationships long term.
I am drawn to working with families, couples, and individuals who may be experiencing conflict within their personal or professional relationships, particularly those who have experienced childhood adversity, trauma, or cultural conflict. I have a particular interest in the impact of diversity on sexual and gender identity.
I enjoy hiking and the great outdoors, and I find a great deal of peace and serenity in a natural setting. Furthermore I have experience with ADHD, which helps explain why I’m always on the go. Belly dancing and Ping Pong are some of my favorite physical outlets. I also love to cook and entertain. In fact I was a personal chef many years ago!
