Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I was inspired to become a therapist by my parents, growing up my mother was a social worker and my father worked at the Department of Social Services.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with my partner, my dog, reading, science-fiction, being outdoors and spending time with friends and family.

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

I take my dog for long walks.

What book have you read more than once?

Milk & Honey by Rupi Kaur. I consider it a masterpiece around identity, pain and empowerment.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite non-profit is Planned Parenthood because they are the leading advocates and providers for women and queer health in the nation.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by lighting candles, putting on some lavender lotion and reading a good book or watching a show about space.

Do you have any pets?

My dog's name is Bo, he is a rescue I have had for almost 3 years. He is the light of my life. It makes me smile that he remembers where my friends / families live or their cars and will memorize good experiences, so that when people he hasn't seen in a while or places he hasn't gone in a while happen again, he completely remembers and gets incredibly excited for the reunion.
