Get To Know Me
What brings you joy?
The first thing I think of is being in nature. Being in nature has always been my happy place. Whether I am exploring a new location or in a place I have been to 30 times, it always brings me a sense of connectedness, serenity and joy. To me, nature has a very calming and restorative power. Frank Lloyd Wright said, “Study Nature, love Nature, stay close to Nature. It will never fail you.”
I also LOVE anything creative- specifically photography, painting, music and creating!
What do you love most about being a therapist?
Being a therapist is the most amazing job- if I can even call it a job. It feels like my calling and provides me with a great sense of purpose. When someone comes in and wants to improve, heal, change, or learn more about something, it feels really good to be a part of that. I also love being a psychological detective and solving problems with people. I use what I know from my training and experience and they use what they know about being an expert on themselves to figure it out together. It’s usually a fun, interesting, challenging experience every time. I like being able to form a healing environment for people. I enjoy providing a quiet oasis from the madness of modern life, where people can slow down, be thoughtful and introspective, feel and let their guard down, and be accepted for who they are while still challenged to work and change in healthy ways.
