Q: What is your go-to self-care?
DT: Snuggling on the couch with a candle lit and a Netflix movie.
Q: What is one thing you enjoy during the holiday season?
DT: Picking out a color theme for my Christmas decor and then seeing it come to life when I put them all up.
Q: What do you like about being a therapist?
DT: Seeing growth in my clients. Oftentimes mental health is really difficult and uncomfortable to talk about, but when you move past the discomfort and address the humanity in the room with you, it’s really great to see the impact that that can have on the client’s life. Being a part of that process is really validating and reminds me why I chose therapy in the first place.
Q: What do you like about working at Revive so far?
DT: On my first day of working at Revive, I signed on to group supervision and I remember feeling overwhelmed by how kind and welcoming the environment and being surrounded by this group of women felt. I think it was a very unique experience because the work can be challenging but having a group of strong women who are supportive and want you to win and be successful just as much as they are, is a rarity in the workforce and it’s really empowering to have.
Q: How would you describe your therapeutic style?
DT:I’d also like to think I’m funny so I try to use humor whenever possible to break the ice and make the therapeutic space more comfortable. I also try to use a person-centered approach where I do my best to empower my clients to address whatever challenge they’re facing on their own while understanding how that impacts their wellbeing.
