Therapy Style

I believe that you are the expert on yourself, and together, we can work on reconnecting with that "you" at your best. At times, we lose sight of ourselves; we take on too much, we skip meals, sacrifice sleep, and simply don't take care of ourselves. We lose our connection to our innate "superpowers" and we need to reset, reboot and restart. We will address self-care, sleep hygiene, mindfulness, boundary setting, and exploring and increasing wellness in your life.

Why did you become a mental health professional?

As a third culture kid, I had multiple experiences of being foreign, an oddity, and having to find how I could fit in with each scenario. Through living in different countries, societies, socio-economic statuses, taking on differing roles, speaking different languages; I was able to comprehend differing viewpoints and the ways that language and experience can filter understanding. It inspired my voracious appetite for knowledge, fed my desire to explore therapy as a tool for assisting those that, like me, are oddities in their settings.

What are your interests outside of work?

Dog rescue, road trips, standup comedy, dance, weight lifting and thrifting

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

I am strict about getting my needed amount of sleep.

What book have you read more than once and why?

I have a love of David Sedaris books and often reread his short stories as a part of my self care. I enjoy the humor, the desire for growth and the silliness that he embodies.

How do you recharge?

Every few months I make an effort to spend quality time with my whole family. Cooking together, slumber parties, fighting, making up and always some sort of heavy construction.

Do you have any pets?

I have two rescue dogs. They sleep approximately 20 hours a day, eat everything and are great role models for mindfulness.
