I’m a part time bilingual therapist
I chose FSA because it is an organization that provides quality services to families in my community. I have lived in the area for a long time and I have always had an interest in being able give back.
I provide clinical therapy services to individuals, primarily children and adolescents, that are suffering from mental health related symptoms. I help with developing techniques to reduce or eliminate symptoms from their daily lives, provide hopefulness and empower them to improve self-confidence. I find that strengthening the ways families relate to each other also improves well being. It is also beneficial to connect my clients and their families to appropriate community resources and always make sure to have that information available.
This is a field where there is constant research and interventions are always being updated or strengthened. I like being able to learn different strategies and learn about their effectiveness. I also enjoy getting perspectives from other clinicians in the field.
I would have to say that the best part is being able to work with a diverse population and being able to learn new things all the time. I find that as much as I am able to assist my clients I am always able to learn things about myself as a clinician.
My family, I know it sounds redundant, but my family has always motivated me to do well in any field that I would have decided to pursue.

People would be surprised if they knew I play the violin and understand French because I do not practice it enough to be fluent.
