Tell us about your work related to mental health and wellness:
As a therapist, I have come to understand that people strive to be heard and to share their perspective on the world. With this, I open the space for people to gain an understanding of their purpose, themselves, and the world around them.
When working with others, I focus on the exploration and interpersonal relationship building. I explore how self-expression through a variety of virtuosity mediums merges with my client’s identity. I create a space that capitalizes on diversity and meets the needs of clients by offering a variety of interventions and therapeutic techniques. I find value in encouraging people to develop their identity.
I challenge my clients by emboldening them to question things when they are skeptical or researching when they need more understanding. I support their journey while also instilling an atmosphere of set expectations so personal growth cannot only be pursued but also achieved. I foster this by encouraging them to place themselves in an environment outside of the therapeutic space where they can build individuation and self-expression.
I do not present as all-knowing, or an expert on life, however, I offer a space of credibility. I am skilled in several theoretical orientations, multicultural competencies, creative expressions, and counseling techniques. I hold a psychology master’s degree from Carlow University. I have also taken several masters level Art Therapy courses to support my journey as a therapist and I am currently pursuing a doctorate in clinical psychology (Psy.d).
I incorporate positive psychology, art, wellness, and mind/bodywork while working with clients. I strive to be authentic and genuine with each of my clients by offering interventions through a person-centered lens. If you would like to know more about the services I offer, please feel free to reach out! I look forward to hearing from you!

I also have an interview session that further describes my role in the field of psychology and wellness. It fairly long (less than an hour) but it is a fun video to engage viewers to consider their mental health in a more relaxing and intentional environment.
