Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I couldn't imagine doing anything that didn't involve helping others. At a very young age, I discovered a talent for listening and making others feel comfortable. Pursuing a career in psychology felt like a natural choice and was the best way to combine my passion for helping others with my talent for being a person to whom others feels comfortable talking.
What I want my patients to know about me:
It's very important to me that my patients to feel heard and understood. I put much effort into conveying this. I also strive to be dependable and diligent so that my patients know they can rely on me.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I have five cats who are my therapy. I also love music, movies, and a little pampering with a massage or a pedicure for self-care.
