My communication style
I am open-minded, understanding, an active listener, and calm. I am pleasant and have a positive outlook. I want to make sure you feel comfortable when talking to me.
My journey to mental healthcare
My parents were high school teachers when I was in grade school. My parents also counseled and taught life skills at school. My parents assisted students with managing their mental health symptoms and finding positive ways to overcome obstacles. My parents’ work inspired me. Therefore, I decided to work in the behavioral health field to help people.
My goals for you
You and I will work together to develop goals that are meaningful to you. During the time we are together, we will track your progress. We will celebrate successes and determine areas that need improvement along the way.
My first session with you
During our first session, we will spend most of the time talking about how you have been feeling lately. I will ask questions about how and why you may be feeling that way. We will decide where we should go from there. I will listen to you nonjudgmentally to understand your situation and what would work best for you moving forward.
