my
personal life

I live in Minneapolis with my partner. I like to spend time reading, playing music, connecting with nature, and being with friends and family. I pursued counseling as a career because I saw how loved ones with mental illness were stigmatized and I wanted to be part of changing that. I am passionate about advocating that we can shape the life we want and I want to help people on their journey toward healing and living.
