Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have personal experiences with family members struggling with mental health and addiction that made me want to help those in need.

What are your interests outside of work?

Hiking with my dog, yoga and exercise, spending time with friends and family, and shopping.

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

Exercise or walking my dog.

What book have you read more than once?

The Mind-Body Prescription as it has helped me personally and to inform my practice.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

To Write Love on Her Arms. They focus on mental health and addiction which I have seen my family struggle with.

How do you recharge?

I enjoy reading or being outdoors.

Do you have any pets?

Yes—I have a dog. My favorite pet story is about when she was a puppy and we went hiking, she followed these three dogs down the trails and they jumped into the water. She blindly followed and jumped in without thinking and had a look of panic on her face—she has been a water lover ever since.
