Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I've always been interested in learning how and why the mind works, why we do the things we do, and how biological and environmental factors can affect that. With that, I enjoy helping people understand these effects and help navigate through them

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy live music, concerts, exercise, and collecting indoor plants.

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

One thing I do daily to support my mental and emotional well-being is exercise. Whether it's a brisk walk, a run, or lifting weights, physical activity helps to boost my mood and clear my mind.

What book have you read more than once?

One book I've read more than once is The Shack by William Paul Young. This novel offers an exploration of grief and healing framed within a spiritual journey. It reflects on the nature of forgiveness, the problem of suffering, and the human relationship with the divine. It challenges the conventional perceptions of spirituality, which prompts me to revisit it to delve deeper into its layers of meaning and personal relevance.

How do you recharge?

To recharge, I turn to quiet, solitary activities that allow me to slow down and reflect. Taking a leisurely walk, practicing yoga, or tending to my house plants. These activities help me to disconnect from the fast pace of daily life and reconnect with myself.
