What makes you different than others in your profession?
We emphasize short-term work that has a big impact. We address situational and perpetual problems with clients, then shift the focus towards achieving their goals for long-term results.
We treat a variety of problems, including difficulty regulating emotion, relational issues, anxiety, depression, loneliness, couples' concerns, developmental delays, LGBTQ and cultural concerns, addiction, and many others.
Our team of mental health professional women (and men) have all pursued the gold standard of training in our specific areas of specialty. Our complementary specialties allow us to collaborate with each other.
What brings you the most satisfaction in your work?
That moment when a client is on the verge of significant change and you can feel the energy radiating from them! It's amazing to see transformation occur during a therapy session. When a client has moved toward or accomplished their goals, that's success.
What one thing do many people not know about therapy?
Group therapy can be a powerful tool – equal to or even more effective than individual treatment. The modality of groups is a tremendous part of our practice. We have many groups: some are for those looking to go deeper in their lives and others are short-term with focus on building a set of skills.
What advice would you offer to women just starting out?
Choose a specialty you are passionate about and learn that practice intimately. Pursue continuing education throughout your career. Stay connected in your field by joining a group practice, getting involved in professional organizations or joining a consultation team. Most importantly, build a practice from a place of passion and to manifest in your own life the principles you share with others.
