I have experience conducting a wide range of psychological assessments and psychotherapy services across various mental health settings (i.e., a residential treatment facility, college counseling centers, private practices, and an outpatient community mental health center). I have worked with children as young as 2, adolescents, adults, groups, and families.
Through all of this, I discovered my true passion for therapy, particularly with adolescents or adults and those who have experienced some type of trauma in their past. A lot of us don't even realize we've been through a trauma (and yes, that can include a toxic work environment or past relationship, including within our families!) until a stressful situation down the line stirs up some emotions or struggles we don't understand. As I mentioned above, this may appear in the form of anxiety or perfectionism, sometimes to the point of OCD-like symptoms.
