Hi, thanks for visiting my page! While I absolutely love being a Mental Health Counselor and am spending a lot of time learning ways to support my clients, I also have many other facets to my life. When I’m not in the office you’ll find me spending time with my loved ones or catching up on a new Netflix show.
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 rubs.
I also enjoy being active and moving my body in ways that feel good. Throughout my own healing journey with food and exercise, I found strength and love for lifting weights, kickboxing and taking walks in nature. I’ve played field hockey and basketball in high school and taught kickboxing for 4+ years while in college.
Everyone who knows me also knows that summer and fall are my favorite seasons of the year. You will often find me at the Jersey shore soaking up the sun and walking on the beach looking for the perfect shells to add to my collection or sipping on a yummy pumpkin flavored coffee.
