My secret talent:
Just like my Nonna (grandmother), I’m “fast and fussy” (ie. I can do things very quickly, and although somewhat particular, I am very decisive, which has served me well…so far).
What’s it like to be in a room with me?
I am really mindful to create a grounded and calm energy in the room so that my clients can feel safe to express themselves, knowing that everything is “okay” in this space. I have a lot of compassion for all the people I work with, and like to see people for who they really are, beneath all the heaviness. Most importantly, I see you as my equal, and approach the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, where I can walk alongside and support you on your unique healing journey.
What’s my non-negotiable when it comes to taking care of my own mental health?
To be completely honest, it’s breakfast. I like to give myself 30-40 minutes for breakfast each morning, which gives me enough time to make myself something nice, and not feel rushed to eat it. Having that nourishing routine each morning really sets me up for my day and helps me to stay grounded!
My life motto:
Feeling is healing.
