Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I chose this field because I wanted a career that challenged me daily. I also am fascinated by the way our minds, experience, and relationships intermingle to create our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through therapy, I have the opportunity to assist my clients in growing insight and ultimately making progress toward mental wellness.

What are your interests outside of work?

Spending time with family and friends, listening to audiobooks, crafting, trying new restaurants, and exercising.

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

Connecting with my family and spending intentional time with my children.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

CommuniCare Health Centers - I have been involved with this agency for several years and know how much effort goes into holding true to its mission of serving its community in a trauma-informed and supportive manner that meets the needs of people who are often system-involved.

How do you recharge?

I love doing paint-by-numbers! Its a great stress reliever for me and gives me time to myself to produce something beautiful.

Do you have any pets?

I have two Labradoodles an 8-year-old, Charley, and a 9-month-old, Jack. My family got Jack because we wanted him to learn from Charley. Turns out Jack is the alpha and has brought LOTS of energy to our household!
