Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a therapist in part due to having overcome some of my own struggles, so I wanted to help other people overcome theirs!

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy going to concerts and exercising when I have time. When I have the time energy, I love writing some of my own music!

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

I try to exercise a little every day, as well maintaining a good work-life balance.

What book have you read more than once?

I have read 1984 several times. It always amazes me how much our society is beginning to look like the one described in the book!

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I think it depends on who you ask, but I'm a huge fan of the ACLU. I think, now more than ever, we need to stand up for our civil liberties.
