Why did you become a mental health professional?

My best friend and I went to school together to become therapists. I have always been the friend others come to for support. Helping others, and teaching people how to become empowered is something I greatly enjoy.

What are your interests outside of work?

Video games, reading, audiobooks, playing in my garden, animal rescue, true crime, documentaries, movies, music, family adventures.

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

Gardening is one of my main self-care activities, as well as positive self-talk.

What book have you read more than once?

There are so many books I could read over and over but I think the first that comes to mind is the Harry Potter series. I enjoy reading them with my children and experiencing a world of magic.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by listening to music, naps, snuggling any one of our animals, or children, and a walk in the grass never seems to hurt either.

Do you have any pets?

We have a whole menagerie of pets. Just a week ago we rescued two orphaned kittens, and currently, I am in the middle of bottle-feeding one, it's like having a newborn all over again.
