What do you enjoy in your free time?

I love going for walks in nature in my free time. Seeing birds, bunnies, and turtles really makes my day! Also, I enjoy playing board games with my friends and family. 

What’s one of your favorite places you’ve traveled?

Olympic National Park is one of the most beautiful places I’ve traveled to. My family goes on an annual backpacking trip, which my partner and I got to plan this past year. We decided on Olympic National Park because you can see three distinct ecosystems there: coastal, rainforest, and alpine. The hikes were more difficult than we expected, but it was worth it to see Hoh lake and the High Divide! 

What do you enjoy most about your job?

I feel very privileged that this job gives me the opportunity to genuinely know people on a deep level. I recognize that it’s not easy to be vulnerable and I feel lucky that people trust me to do this work alongside them. Also, I love celebrating ‘wins’ with my clients, whether it’s big or small. 

What’s your favorite snack?

I love chips! Anything crunchy and salty is my go to. 

What do you wish clients knew about you?

I want my clients to know that I’m human too! I’m not perfect, nor do I try to be. I show up authentically in sessions, so that we can connect as people first. 

Would you rather live in a world with no books or no music?

This is such a hard one, because I love both! I’ll say no books, because I can’t imagine a world without music. I would miss my Stephen King thrillers though!
