Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

Some roles feel instinctive and bring joy as you grow and evolve within them. For me, mental health is such a field. I take pleasure in offering support, eliminating obstacles, providing supervision, and advocating for policy reforms.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am particularly fond of reading, hiking, and meditating.

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

I enjoy settling down with a hot beverage and observing nature. I've noticed that our lives are frequently filled with too much stimulation, and taking even just five minutes for some self-soothing can significantly improve my day.

How do you recharge?

I hold the view that self-care and cherishing moments with my dear ones are the most effective methods to rejuvenate. I have a special fondness for hiking by the ocean, where the sound of the wind and waves truly soothes me. I discovered that reaching a state of tranquility makes it easier for me to recharge.
