WHY THERAPY?
As a former teacher I think the most important thing we can do is listen to each other. Therapy serves as an outlet for thought, fears and goals, it helps the mind focus on goals and analyze challenges. It’s a healthy way to navigate a complex world.

FUN FACT
I was an exchange student in Denmark.  It was one of the best experiences of my life, assimilating into a different culture and language. I now have a Danish family forever. I realized that family is not just inherited.

AT HOME
I enjoy renovating my home and I also enjoy tea time with my children.

WORDS OF WISDOM
Never give up.
