What do you like to do when you are not working? What do you do for fun?

When I am not working, I like to be outdoors in any capacity! When the weather is decent, you can find me in the park near my house reading or spending time with friends. Camping is a big part of my life during the warm months along with spending time at the lakefront.

What are you excited about? What is your passion? What do you want to learn more about?

I am excited to learn more about somatic-based therapeutic approaches and to incorporate these into my work with clients. It is also a goal of mine to become a certified sex therapist in the next several years.

What do you like about being a therapist?

I love the collaborative process of being curious with a client about their experiences and supporting them in making meaning from them. The connection fostered in the therapeutic space feels expansive, and I find myself continually inspired by the introspection and strength I witness through this work.
