Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I always felt connected to supporting others so when I was told a long time ago that I should check out the social work profession so I could be a therapist, I began exploring. I truly believe I landed in the perfect profession for me and feel so fortunate to be a part of others' journeys.

What are your interests outside of work?

My interests outside of work include being with my young kids, and watching them learn and grow. I also value time with my family and working on our house.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

I admire any organization or non-profit that is committed to raising awareness and reducing the stigma around mental health. I am trained in the recovery model and strength-based perspective and find I align with any philosophy that mental health is health and that no one should feel shame or guilt in acknowledging a need to address their mental health.

How do you recharge?

I recharge by getting caught up on my favorite shows.

Do you have any pets?

I am currently in the first year of owning my first puppy. It's been an adventure and I can't imagine our family without him. He sometimes makes an appearance!
