What made you become a therapist?
All my friends wanted to be therapists when I was in middle school. I’m the only one that stuck with it.
What have you learned from client’s?
I’ve learned that my clients already know what to do, but they usually just need a little bit of encouragement. I’ve also learned about the value of persistence. You can do anything, as long as you persist.
What do you find yourself saying the most?
Don’t be so hard on yourself!
What is the way you recharge yourself?
I enjoy recharging through physical activity, whether that be playing sports, working out, or just walking the dog.
What’s your best tip?
The rule of 5. Will this matter in 5 minutes, 5 hours, 5 days, 5 weeks, 5 months, 5 years? Put that into perspective.
What is your style of therapy?
I personalize my style for every client, but I generally practice mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral therapy.
“The only normal people are the ones you don’t know very well.” – Alfred Adler
Best book you’ve read or movie you’ve seen and why?
This changes probably every few months. There are so many good books out there. Right now, its Talking to Strangers by Malcolm Gladwell, because it brings light to the heuristics and other little tricks our minds use that often deceive us.
Clients you work best with?
I work best with clients with anxiety.
Why did you choose BBHW?
I chose BBHW because it’s an inviting place with an inspiring staff.
