As you've probably guess by this point, I love a great story! I've always enjoyed books, movies, and music for the tales they tell about what it means to be human. I try to apply those principles of meaning-making in my counseling approach. So by all means, tell me about your favorite fandom, video game, or music!
Taking a look at the system we live in is important to me, as well. Every hero has a context, and understanding our environment, both how it helps and hinders us, is key to growth. Only then can we address issues of equity, inclusion, and social justice. I take my role as a clinician very seriously, but I also believe counselors are called to be advocates for our clients.
On a more personal note, I'm a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, and my experiences inform my approach to therapy. I enjoy reading and writing, trying new foods, discovering new music, and traveling during my free time. I also have a three-legged rescue cat who keeps me on my toes!
