Chat with me

Hello everyone! I've been a therapist for the past 10 years and have worked with youth and their families for almost 20 years. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, spending time with family and friends, and going to the movies. I love to bake too but my baking is more "Nailed It!" than "Bake Off" though!
