Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I was very interested in understanding relationships and why some worked and some didn't. I decided I wanted to go back to school and study to become a couples therapist. I find this population challenging but so rewarding to collaborate with. Of course I work with individuals and really couples work is with two individuals who are coming together to find a better way to be in relationship with each other.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am a fitness instructor and I love coaching and helping participants discover their athleticism. I have some students in their 80's, and they inspire me to appreciate and maintain my physical health as well as my mental health. What's good for the body is good for the mind and what's good for the mind is good for the body

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

I walk my dog Sansa. We have a great neighborhood where I can walk her off leash and throw a ball for her to chase. I often listen to a podcast or catch up with a friend or family member on the phone while I walk. Sometimes I just focus on the nature around me, noticing the signs of the season we're in or about to move into.

What book have you read more than once?

The Art of Racing in The Rain is a book that I read and reread because it touched me when I first read it when my children were young, and our family dog Lucky was alive and well. After Lucky died, I returned to this story narrated in the voice of a wonderful family dog named Enzo, and allowed myself to be comforted and soothed by it's messages that life goes on and energy and love never die, they just transform into something new.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

There's so many great non-profits to support, and one I learned about recently is Mobility Matters. This organization recognizes our seniors who are often homebound without access to reliable transportation for basic necessities such as prescriptions, groceries, medical appointments, or other needs. Through Mobility Matters, volunteers sign up to drive seniors to the store, or an appointment and spend about two to three hours helping the senior get where they need to go. It's a kind of like a senior ride share with intention to connect our seniors with their communities, free of charge.

How do you recharge?

I find ways to recharge through spending time with my family, exercise, and being in my garden. I enjoy a quality TV show series whenever I can, something with compelling story and great writing.

Do you have any pets?

My life wouldn't feel complete without pets. Currently, I have my terrier-mix dog, Sansa, and three (!) cats; Loki, Eva and Bernadette. Clients may catch a glimpse of them during our virtual session!
