MA - Counseling, Kean University
As a child, my immediate family experienced a loss. The grief was profound for all of us yet, it was never quite processed appropriately by any member. This observation sparked an interest in me to want to understand human behavior. Why were we all brushing it under the rug and hurting in solitude? My interest in psychology grew and I found myself seeking out examples of counseling through media; tv shows, radio, and magazines. Everywhere I looked people were seeking help. I knew that I wanted to be one of those people that could help ease the suffering of another.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my three young children. We love to watch movies, take walks, and visit with family. My friendships are very important to me so, making time for socialization is also a high priority. I carve out time to lift weights as building mental strength through physical obstacles is a challenge I truly enjoy.
I recharge by getting lots of sleep and spending time alone when needed.
