Why did I become a counselor: I adamantly believe in the healing that occurs through sharing your story with safe others. My hope is for no one to feel alone in their pain. It is simply the greatest gift to be able to love humans for exactly who they are, and I can’t imagine doing anything different. 

What I like about Cincinnati: The OH & Little Miami Rivers, Smale Park, The Taft Theatre, Skyline, the outdoor greens of April,’s the hometown to most of my family, which is really why I’m here.
