Why did you become a mental health professional?

As a nonbinary trans person, I often struggled to find therapists with similar lived experience. This motivated me to provide mental health support and access for my communities.

What are your interests outside of work?

I really enjoy cooking and trying new recipes. I also love music and going to concerts.

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

I love reading! I do a reading challenge every year and it helps keep me grounded and it limits my time on social media.

Do you have any pets?

I have two cats named Coquito and Cuchifrito! I'm slightly allergic to them so we have a love/hate relationship at times.
