I have known that I wanted to be a therapist since I was 12 years old and read about emotional intelligence for the first time. My personal experience with my own mental health struggles as well as the challenges faced by my loved ones has given me a heart and passion for this field that most mental health professionals share. I believe that optimum wellness looks different for everyone, and that no matter what everyone can and deserves to achieve this state. I have found that comprehensive, compassionate healthcare is a key component in one’s ability to reach this state, and I am passionately dedicated to working towards improving access and outcomes in the mental health field for all. I began my career working in admissions at a substance use disorder treatment facility that offered detox, residential, and intensive outpatient services shortly after I started graduate school. The experiences I had there during my 5 year tenure, three of which were spent as a residential program therapist, served as an incredible foundation for my understanding of the successes and shortcomings of mental health and addiction treatment, the available continuum(s) of care, and how to meet struggling people where they are and stand beside them on their journey in healing. I also learned more than I ever thought I wanted to know about systems, processes, policies, managed care, licensure and accreditation, corporate politics, interdisciplinary collaboration, and myself during that time. Additionally, I have experience working for a local mental health authority (LMHA) system, and in utilization management, which has given me a unique understanding of the gaps in care and the shortcomings our current healthcare system is experiencing. With some overlap, I have also spent 6 years (and counting) working in the private practice setting providing therapy for individuals, couples, and families. When I came to work for Connections Wellness Group in January of 2019 we were a small but growing company who had just opened the doors of our second office. It has been an honor to grow personally and professionally alongside CWG since that time, through seemingly countless seasons of trial and triumph, with lessons learned well every step of the way. In September of 2019 we had grown enough that the need for “Lead Therapist” positions became obvious, and I was honored to accept a promotion to the inaugural lead therapist cohort. When the pandemic hit in March of 2020, our team navigated a near instantaneous pivot to Telehealth services, which continues to be a cornerstone of our service delivery even as things are returning to “normal”. Instead of finding ourselves slowing down or needing to lay off employees as countless industries did, we found our growth exploding. We onboarded therapists who we had never met in person. In October of 2020 our growth was such that I was offered a new position, Director of Private Practice, which entailed overseeing a team of 6+ Lead Therapists and 50+ Private Practice Therapists. I am thrilled to continue my journey with Connections Wellness Group as the Executive Director of our Flower Mound location (opening September 2021), and to support our expansions across the DFW metroplex in this way. It is truly an honor to work with so many resilient, passionate visionaries and to be part of a team that unapologetically pursues unequivocal excellence in all that we do. Our goal is to be champions of radical change in the mental health industry through eliminating the stigma surrounding mental health challenges, redefining high quality outcomes and accessibility of treatment, and improving the very system that mental health professionals work in.
