Why did you become a mental health services provider? I enjoy listening to people’s stories and hearing about their personal experiences. I think each person's unique experience is fascinating, and I try to remain curious about how we each individually perceive and cope.
What qualities best describe the care you provide to your patients?  I am caring, empathetic, collaborative and have a good a sense of humor.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?  I enjoy seeing people progress, better their lives and overcome challenges.  
What is the most important message you would like to share with your patients? I think every person deserves to receive support and be heard.
What would you like your patients to know about you? I try to find a sense of humor in most things.
Clinical Interests: Depression, anxiety, job stress, life stress, family and relationship issues, teen issues, grief and loss, adjustments and life transitions, mental health and cancer, survivors of domestic violence, support for healthcare workers
