Why did you become a mental health professional?

I decided to become a therapist due to a realization that a person's inner workings are often ignored. I have always wanted to impact change in the world, and feel that it begins with the individual (who then impacts the environment). 

What are your interests outside of work?

Outside of work, my interests are traveling, technology, books/reading, and learning (enter documentaries and TED talks).

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

I take daily walks and listen to motivational speeches either in the morning or prior to going to bed as a good reset.

What book have you read more than once?

I've read The Ant and The Elephant a few times because I love the simplified analogy of Adir the ant (conscience) learning to work with Elgo the elephant (sub-conscience) to get to the Oasis (goal).
