I became a mental health professional because I have a passion to assist individuals in their process of healing and reach their goals in making positive lifestyle changes in order to feel fulfillment and have a sense of empowerment.
Outside of work I enjoy kayaking, music, art shows, music events. Also, I enjoy being a mother.
I enjoy doing daily meditation, grounding, yoga, and reading.
Make A Wish Foundation - it allows for a child with a critical illness have a wish come true. It assists them in having the faith and the strength to get through the challenges of fighting through an illness and it gives them and their families hope.
I recharge by using grounding techniques, doing some workouts and meditative yoga.
