I have been endlessly fascinated with the human psyche and relationships between people for as long as I can remember. After trying out various jobs, which weren’t fulfilling my soul, I realized that I needed to follow my passion and pursue psychology. My life’s path eventually led me to get my Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology at Antioch University. While at Antioch I was able to participate in one of the country’s first LBGT specializations, where I learned about the unique history and struggles of the LGBT community, and how to work with an LGBTQIA affirmative approach. I was also fortunate to have the opportunity to travel to Japan and France to study the ways in which Zen and Tibetan Buddhism, and the practice of meditation, can be integrated with western schools of psychology, and improve mental health.
In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, running, listening to music, dancing, traveling, snowboarding, and spending time with friends (human and animal). I am on a constant quest for learning, self-discovery, and growth, so that I am at my best for the clients I service.
