Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health talk therapist because I believe in the potential for everyone to overcome trauma and live in the light of life.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy participating in yoga and sound bath retreats. I am a music enthusiast so I love going to concerts. I also enjoy stand up comedy shows to get good laugh therapy sessions. I am also a Dodger fan so you can find me rooting for them on the regular.

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

I love hot yoga and music. I feel both are great coping skills that help me maintain a stable mental and emotional well-being.

Do you have any pets?

I have a little chihuahua who loves to dress up in her little clothes. One holiday she was mischievous and jumped on the table to eat a tamale!
