Hi, thanks for visiting my page! While I love being a Mental Health Counselor, I have many other facets to my life. When I’m not in the office you’ll find me spending time with my family, catching up on a new Netflix show or reading poetry books.
In my spare time, I work at a veterinarian hospital helping furry friends in need. My love for animals is just as great as my love for being a therapist. I have a tortious shelled rescue cat named Pippa who fondly enjoys receiving belly scratches.
