Why did you become a mental health professional?

I became a mental health professional because I know how hard it can be to struggle and feel lost. Seeking my own therapy was so beneficial, and I want to be able to help others find their way and lead their best life possible.

What are your interests outside of work?

I love the outdoors. Some of my favorite activities include biking. blading, swimming, hiking, and snowboarding. I also love to explore new places. My favorite pastime though, is hanging with my son.

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

Staying connected is important to me. I make sure I reach out to at least one friend or family member to see how they are doing and letting them know how much I care about them.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

My favorite organization is the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF). The work they do inspires my own. It also resonates with me personally as I have struggled on my OCD journey.

How do you recharge?

Quiet time spent with a good book.

Do you have any pets?

I have two dogs. My son picked out our first, Indy, when he was born. Two years later we decided to foster a dog (Dru) and ended up adopting him. They both like to walk, but that is where the similarities end. Indy would play all day if he could, and Dru wouldn’t mind just laying around being pet. But they get along fabulously and are both wonderful additions to our family.
