Why did you become a mental health professional?

At various times in my life there were people that helped me when I needed to be seen and heard. They empowered me to find the strength necessary to navigate the challenges I was working to resolve. I became a clinician to create spaces for my clients in which they could feel both seen and heard. Within those spaces, my goal is always to work in a collaborative way with my clients to help them find the strength and insight to find their way toward healing and growth.

What is one thing you do daily that supports your well-being?

I spend 10-15 minutes meditating on a daily basis. In addition to that, I spend time journaling at the end of each day.

Do you have any pets?

My dog is named Cane. He is the most loving and loyal dog I’ve ever had. Approximately a year or so ago I had a health issue that required me to spend several days in the hospital. When I came home Cane was so happy to see me and so concerned for me that he refused to leave me alone.
