I love my work. Therapy can be both serious and playful. I try to be as real with my clients as possible because it's good for both my clients and myself. I also love water. I've been swimming my whole life and still enjoy competing occasionally. I am a fitness enthusiast and also work as a Holistic Personal Trainer helping clients integrate mind and body. In addition to continually being in my own personal therapy (which I believe all therapists should) I consider exercise, meditation, inspirational reading, and writing to be part of my daily mental and physical hygeine. I practice what I teach as a therapist and continually set aside time for my own healing and growth. I also love waterskiing, wakeboarding, wakesurfing, and snow skiing. I don't hide my personal life from my clients as I believe bringing as much of my humanity into the therapy room as possible serves my clients in their growth and healing.
