What is your practice philosophy? I view it as a privilege to be a guide on my client’s personal recovery journey. As a psychologist, I see my job as one of supporting and nurturing positive change in others. I believe that therapy can be beneficial to anyone who has the desire to look deeper into themselves and is willing to invest in the process.
What are you passionate about? And why? Mental health awareness. I believe that mental health impacts everyone and that we as a society are not effectively seeing these impacts and addressing them. To me it is important to inform others and to advocate for mental health awareness to improve our ability to help others and ourselves.
If I wasn’t a provider, I would be a: A zookeeper who works with sloths! I love sloths and find them absolutely fascinating.
Why did you become a provider? When did you know this was the career for you? I have known since I was a child that I wanted to help people. I find the brain to be a complex and amazing organ which impacts every part of someone’s life. During undergrad, I found that I could combine these two interests into the practice of psychology.
Something I have learned from my patients is: The resilient nature of the human spirit. It never stops amazing me how people can overcome obstacles and thrive in life.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is (and why): Balancing change and acceptance with clients.
My personal health goal is: To make home cooked meals with the whole family each week.
What is the best thing you’ve done for your health or the best health advice you’ve received? Drinking more water.
What are you most proud of? Completing my doctorate while building my family.
- Spending time with family and friends
