What are you passionate about as a mental health provider?
"I am passionate about witnessing the spark of recognition and new awareness in someone's eyes. Seeing solutions at work in people's lives brings me immense joy. I treasure the opportunity to be of service to and connected with my students, clients, and the individuals I supervise. As the Director of Therapeutic Services, I have the privilege of extending support beyond the therapy office and promoting the well-being of the Integrated team members."

What do you enjoy about your role at Integrated?
"I thoroughly enjoy my role at Integrated. Managing a remarkable team of clinicians while engaging in meaningful work with our students is incredibly fulfilling. Having worked in residential care for many years, I appreciate the unique perspective that the Integrated treatment team brings to transitional aged programming."

What therapeutic book do you live by?
"A favorite therapy book is The Happiness Trap by Russ Harris. Harris is one of the founders of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, my favorite modality. The premise is that we are being sold a lie in western culture, that if we're not always happy, something is very very wrong. This runs counter to reality, such as, if a loved one dies, I'd be far more concerned were you fighting to be happy, instead of allowing yourself to grieve, especially since your loved one is probably worth grieving! The book offers a roadmap through allowing whatever feelings we're experiencing as a natural outgrowth of the human experience (one might argue our wide ranging emotions are what make us human). Allow our emotions and move forward in a valued direction despite the emotions."

What are you passionate about as a mental health provider?
“Something I am passionate about as a therapist is the ability to get to know people and have authentic conversations. As a therapist, I can assist people as they work through emotional burdens, and personal challenges and I can help them achieve a healthier mindset.”

What do you enjoy about your role at Integrated?
“It has been my experience in the mental health field that people are often controlled and/or expected not to make mistakes. Integrated understands that people make mistakes, and we use those mistakes as continued learning opportunities. The way Integrated utilizes natural consequence allows space for the students to have autonomy as well as support and guidance as they go through the next steps of their journey.”

What therapeutic book do you live by?
"A therapeutic book I have been deeply inspired by would be Brene Brown’s “The Gift’s of Imperfection.” It has allowed me to genuinely and vulnerably practice what it means to not only be authentic but to embrace that authenticity. Reading and applying some of the invaluable lessons learned has allowed me to release self judgment and allow myself to experience belonging in its more true form. This has impacted my work by allowing me to see the value in empathy, and adopting the methodology of living for ourselves, and not other people."
