Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I started as a music therapist in a study to find alternative ways to manage pain for cancer patients admitted to a hospital. Through that, I became involved with the patients and families and wanted to learn more ways to help them than just pain management and began studying psychology and went through to earn my master's degree in counseling psychology.

What are your interests outside of work?

I am still a musician, interested in new-age healing approaches, very involved in my daughter's dance, and am a foster parent.

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

I like listening to or playing music, and reading.

What book have you read more than once?

Bid Time Return—it was the book that the movie Somewhere in Time was based on. It's escapism. Counseling-wise, I have read and re-read Janina Fisher's _Transforming the Living Legacy of Trauma- a lot.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Cape Assist—I worked for them for several years and am still in awe of all the amazing support and services they provide for the local community.

How do you recharge?

Sleep, play music, and take personal time.

Do you have any pets?

Yes, I have 3 black cats who enjoy photobombing my virtual therapy sessions for UWill. The college students love the cats. My favorite story is the black cat, Lucy who had brain damage from birth. She was gifted to me and showed me that the most beautiful and loving beings come in imperfect packages. Her head was so small for her body but she had the most perfect love.
