Personal: I truly enjoy the relationships that are built during this process and being a part of growth and positive change. Being a counselor has taught me that I learn more from my clients than they learn from me, and that we are all connected in a way in which we can simply just sit and learn from each other. Also, I am a huge animal lover and believe in the therapeutic energy of animals and nature. From time to time, you may hear me talk about my cat and my walks in nature.
