Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have always enjoyed helping others. I have wanted to become a mental health professional to better understand human behavior and help others better understand themselves. My experiences as a young teen in therapy were very positive and self-affirming. I have always wanted to do that for others.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love to create art using various mediums including clay, paint, and sculpture.

What book have you read more than once?

I have read The Premiere Book of Major American Poets more times than I can count. It's a collection of amazing poetry that I enjoy reading. It brings me joy and, although I know the book well, I seem to always find something new each time I re-read it.
