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. I also enjoy being active and moving my body in ways that feel good. I’ve played field hockey and basketball in high school but currently love lifting weights, kickboxing, and taking walks outside. I’ve been taking kickboxing classes for quite a while and have been an instructor for 3+ years.
Everyone who knows me also knows that summer is my favorite season 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.
