Biographical Info

Title: Psychologist
My Pronouns: She/Her/Hers
Personal Motto: Be honest, be kind, and be true to yourself.
Favorite Quotes: It’s hard to pick one. Here’s two of my favorite quotes that I think pair well together. The first I learned about through a former client; the quote is by Maya Angelou, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better.” The second is by Brené Brown, “Perfection is not the same thing as striving to be our best. Perfectionism is not about healthy achievement and growth; it’s a shield.”
