Why did you become a mental health professional?

It might sound cliche, but following my heart and skills lead me into the mental health profession. In my younger years, I battled my own mental health issues while facing cultural/familial problems, bullying/self-esteem, trauma, and such. Aside from that, many people in my life seemed to go to me for emotional support and guidance. This later grew into what I do and love to do today.

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, I love working out, spending time with my daughter and little family, being in nature, cooking, and mixed martial arts.

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

I thrive off of routine and organization. A lot of things in my life may and can become chaotic. If I am able to organize and orient myself, as well as decompress daily by the end of the day, I find peace.

What book have you read more than once?

The Body Keeps the Score. Not only very informative but very captivating.

How do you recharge?

Taking walks and being mindful and quiet with my thoughts.

Do you have any pets?

I currently do not have a pet but I love animals! The best pet story I have is when I was about 8 years old, I had a Rottweiler that loved to play. I thought it would be nice to teach him to sit. One day I was taking a break from playing with him, and as I sat down, he too decided to sit however on top of me. He was a 60-pound dog, I was only 8 years old.
