Psychology has always fascinated me and help people has always brought me joy, being a therapist allows me to merge those two passions.
I enjoy going on adventures, being in nature, hiking, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
Spending time in nature is a great way for me to ground myself. Every day I find myself at the ocean, a park or a trail to relax and do some mindfulness meditation.
