Pronouns

she/her

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I wanted to have a positive impact on others' wellbeing and lives. It is truly still an honor.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Central Park Conservancy. They work year round rain or shine to restore and maintain the world's most gorgeous urban park(maybe I am biased). I used to volunteer as a greeter for the conservancy.

How do you recharge?

Nature, I walk in Central Park with my dog, taking time off work to go on vacations and staycations and setting boundaries.

Do you have any pets and what's your favorite pet story?

I have a 12 year old Bulldog named Max. When recovering from a ruptured ACL he needed to be strolled around in an extra large dog stroller in NYC. We called it the Maxi Taxi.
