Why did you decide to become a therapist?

I realized I had so much to offer the world through years of experience working in crisis centers and working with individuals with developmental disabilities. Becoming a therapist was the next step to making an even bigger difference in people's lives.

What do you bring to your therapy sessions, and what are some goals?

I bring my warm, authentic self, loads of empathy and a non-judgmental attitude to my sessions. Creating a safe, accepting space for clients to share their vulnerabilities is extremely important to me. A strong therapeutic rapport is the first step in a client's healing journey. So, building a therapeutic alliance and creating a safe space is my first goal... technique comes later on. At Shift, I help clients identify their goals for therapy, and develop a plan to help achieve those goals. I also help clients change negative thought patterns and behaviors, and to develop coping skills to manage their symptoms.
