What do you love most about your job here at GTA?

Having a “work family” is a must for me, and you can certainly find that with the thoughtful, compassionate, funny, and genuine folks here at GTA. My colleagues also embrace my love of 80s music, so that’s a plus!

What should clients know about working with you?

I’m open and direct. As we get to know each other and build our therapeutic relationship, you will quickly learn I’m a straight shooter. While I work to offer a warm and inviting style, I don’t beat around the bush as I help you identify and reach your goals. Therapy works best when clients are open and honest and that goes for the therapist, too! If I have insight, observations, or information that can help, I’m absolutely going to share my thoughts. My goal is to empower you toward change with compassion and gentle direction.

If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be…

A rock star. The only thing holding me back is a complete lack of musical talent. Or maybe I could be one of those people on YouTube who unboxes things…
