I've lived in Mass my whole life aside from 6 months abroad in Andalusia, Spain circa 2013. Proud to call myself daughter/sister/cousin and furMom to a purrfect cat. Blessed.
WHY DID YOU BECOME A THERAPIST?
Since I was young, I've been fascinated by people's stories, putting words and emotions to experiences that formed chapters in their lives, striving to understand and help them understand their bigger picture. I forever have my nose in a book, learning, broadening the knowledge horizon. Some of my favorite moments involve the therapeutic relationship, that click, that vibe, which allows clients the capacity to dive deeper in their awareness and arrive at self actualization.
