Get to Know Me

Why did you become a mental health professional?

I have known that I wanted to be a therapist since I was 12. I have an empathetic nature and genuinely want to help people to be their best selves.

What are your interests outside of work?

I enjoy yoga, reading, spending time outdoors, diamond painting, and crocheting. I also love traveling and spending time with my family.

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

I try to incorporate yoga, relaxation, and walking into my daily routine.

What book have you read more than once?

I have read Caste by Isabel Wilkerson more than once, and each time I was able to learn something new.

Favorite organization/non-profit?

Stand up For Kids is an organization that assists at-risk and homeless children. I support the organization's message, which is to assist at-risk and homeless youth by assisting them with transitioning from crisis to connection.

How do you recharge?

I like to recharge by watching television and movies at home with my family.

Do you have any pets?

In 2020 we adopted a dog from the Shelter, Muggzy. He is my pride and joy, I love all of his little actions and behaviors. He has slowly made his way to sleeping in bed with us, and he likes to snuggle up right in the middle of me and my husband.
