  • What made you decide to become a therapist?

    I always knew I wanted to be in a helping profession. As a teenager, I became fascinated with the idea of becoming a therapist. Learning more about evidenced-based practice and finding my way into the field. My path was a bit convoluted, but I got here as quickly as possible! I have always rooted for the underdog and have a code that is deeply justice-oriented. I have lived my life in a way that stands up to and interrupts injustices. For me being a social worker and therapist has been a calling, the right fit. I am deeply passionate about partnering with people to discover and feel confident in their authentic selves. I landed in higher education for my career and found myself returning to the dream I had when I was seventeen, which is how I decided to become a therapist.

  • Hobbies

    I enjoy camping and reading about different cultural foods and making them. I love traveling to the the Mexican coast and soaking up the sun. I’m always up for a friendly competition/game night.

  • Where do you want to travel?

    Greece
