Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a therapist because I have always been drawn to people and their stories. I am fascinated by individuals and am always in awe of what they have endured to become who they are. I love providing help, and a safe place to be seen and heard so that folks can access their own hope and resiliency.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy walking my dog Frodo, watching cheesy romantic comedies, and going for hikes in the woods.

What book have you read more than once?

I love the book No Bad Parts by Richard Schwartz, as I am heavily influenced and fascinated by Internal Family Systems (IFS) or parts work.

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

If weather permits, I try to take some time to step outside and mindfully take in my surroundings. If that’s not accessible, giving my dog Frodo some pets always helps!
