I am proud to be a psychologist because it allows me to make a positive impact on the world. In my practice I strive to help each individual client value and appreciate themselves such that they may go out into their private worlds empowered to have a positive impact on those around them and those around them and around them and around them.
Early bird or night owl? Night owl
Favorite color, and why? Orange. It’s fun and energizing!
Body part you are learning to love and why. My stomach. It’s never going to be flat and that’s ok. None of the women on my mother’s side have flat stomachs. We are more curvy. The curve of my stomach matches my other curves, and I love them! Thus, I must grandfather my stomach into the “I love my curves” body statute.
A unique thing about me: I have very few pictures of myself, ALWAYS forget my camera, and thus do not have my memories preserved in pictures . . . or a picture of myself on the site . . . yet.
Thing I am most proud of: Close relationships with friends and family.
My biggest struggle: Knowing that I am overextended and accomplishing many things that I’ve set out to and at the same time expecting myself to have a spotless home, be completely organized, have my laundry done, stay in touch with all my friends and family on a regular basis, travel regularly, spend several hours per day with my pooch, organize fun events, and sleep at least 8 hours per night. Luckily I can also laugh at this expectation.
I feel strongest …when surrounded by my fabulous female friends.
Thing I want to scream out into the world the most right now: Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.
