Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Becoming a mental health professional is a calling that emerged from a profound empathy for the human experience and a fervent belief in the capacity for growth and healing. Early in my journey, I witnessed the transformative impact of compassionate therapy on individuals facing diverse struggles. This sparked a passion within me to contribute meaningfully to the well-being of others. I am deeply committed to creating a space where individuals feel heard, understood, and empowered to navigate life's complexities. My decision to become a mental health professional is rooted in a genuine dedication to fostering resilience, promoting self-discovery, increasing access to treatment to underserved populations, and facilitating positive change in the lives of those I have the privilege to work with.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love spending my time with my family enjoying good food, great people, and new places. I am an avid reader and enjoy learning new things. I love to dance, art, cook, and utilize my creativity to create beauty in the world.

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

I take time to do mindfulness exercises or deep breathing. I try to keep my schedule manageable and enjoyable. I laugh and play with my kids daily. I try to walk daily or get activity in.

What book have you read more than once?

A Child Called 'It' by Dave Pelzer is a powerful and harrowing memoir that recounts the author's traumatic childhood experiences of abuse and neglect. While it is not a traditional therapeutic book, it was the first book that opened my eyes to the experiences of other children and how resilient they can be despite the situation they are born into. It developed my ability to empathize with the emotional experiences of individuals who have undergone severe abuse and created in me a deep understanding of the long-term effects of childhood trauma. I first read this book as a teenager and then later as an adult after completing my degree.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

NAMI has been an organization that has been very helpful to the people I am serving. NAMI is dedicated to providing support, education, and advocacy for individuals and families affected by mental illness. They work to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues. I have referred them often to people I work with to obtain support and information about living with mental illness in our community.

How do you recharge?

Taking time to do what I enjoy and going on a quick getaway with my family or spouse.

Do you have any pets?

We have a dog named Charlie that we adopted during the pandemic. We were looking for a beagle and he was identified as a beagle mix when we got him at the shelter. As he grew his features changed and we began to doubt his breed when our son's baseball coach kept saying, "Hi Taco Bell dog." So I got a DNA test on sale and determined that indeed he was not a beagle but a Chihuahua/Dachshund mix. Despite finding this out he was still a part of our family and we loved him even more it was funny that we kept telling the coach "No he is a beagle mix " but he was right all along.
