Social justice advocacy is very important to me, and I work to uphold values of inclusivity and accessibility in my professional and personal life. I advocate for changing systemic and social biases that negatively impact people's health and well being, including better access to mental health services and ending stigma against mental illness.
When I am not wearing my therapist hat, I am often spending time enjoying the company of my pets, engaged in political activism, taking in and critically analyzing film and literature, singing karaoke, playing trivia games, or going on a little adventure to step out of my comfort zone. Sometimes, I do several of these things at once, often to the annoyance of my aforementioned pets.
