Why are you working in your chosen specialty? A happy life consists not in the absence, but in the mastery of hardship
- Helen Keller
I didn’t start my career journey knowing I wanted to be a therapist.
For ten years I had the privilege of working one on one with people who
wanted to better their wellness, but it felt incomplete. It was only when
I went through my own trials and made a positive change because of them,
did I realize what I wanted to do with the rest of my career. I love helping
people and have every confidence that with some honest work, that people
can become who they want to be and not only make a positive difference
for themselves but for their families, friends and communities.
Why is being a provider important to you? Just as our physical body needs to be cared for, so does our mental health.
I want people to know that while hardship is inevitable it is possible
to come out stronger on the other side.
Why did you choose to work for CCH? CCH offers such a great opportunity to work with a diverse population
in an environment that is conducive to learning. The organization consistently
makes an effort in providing the best possible services for the community.
CCH is open to hearing what people have to say and making changes for
What has made you feel the most pride in your work at CCH? Every day I am surrounded by people who make a genuine effort to make positive
difference in the people of this community.
Who is your health care hero and why? While I look up to many teachers in the field and strive to learn all
I can from them, I am truly enjoying the work of Bessel Van Der Kolk right
now. So many people experience trauma both large and small. While some
are show great resilience and growth through the experience others get
trapped in the pain and chaos of it. Bessel Van Der Kolk brings a clear
understanding to the body’s response to trauma and a hopeful road
map for a whole new level of healing from these experiences.
What advice do you give someone who is looking for a new provider? Therapists are only as good as the information they have. Speak up if something
is not working, take an active role in your therapeutic experience and
if you’re with a therapist that isn’t a good fit, it’s
ok to transfer to someone else.
What do you do for fun? I love spending time with my family. I enjoy staying home, playing games,
walking and reading. I also enjoy traveling, camping, boating, hiking
and making new memories with my family.
