My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I value self development and being authentic, cultivating rewarding friendships, and continuing to learn--be it about a pet interest of the moment (ex. Ancient civilizations), books on what make people tick, or how to pitch my tent in under 5 minutes. (Okay, not counting the rain fly--that may be out of my league at this point).

I work toward having a life filled with more calm and balance--more nature, more time with friends, more exploring the Bay Area, and hopefully finding someone special to share the journey with.

I love travel especially off the beaten path. Five years ago, I took a solo trip for half a year to South East Asia, Nepal, and Tibet and loved it. I'm overdue for some more travel beyond Europe right about now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a therapist with kids, teens, and families helping them build healthier emotional lives. It's challenging most weeks, humbling others, and always rewarding. I'm naturally drawn to self development, learning, and understanding others. And when things line up right, I even make personal progress of my own :-).

Outside of work I am passionate about exercise and nutrition, and am looking forward to trying out kayaking, finding beautiful spots in nature, and exploring the Bay Area. I love going to new cafés and restaurants. I've even contemplated checking out all the local places with an outdoor firepit. Can someone say s'mores?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hosting dinner parties. Cooking reasonably well. Organizing and planning things. And for when things get carried away, I file my whimsical planning ideas under my "Ridiculous" folder. Ah, low priced entertainment...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friends tell me "you're warm and smart and kind and all of that stuff."

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Great conversations
2. Exercise...and ice
3. Friends & Family
4. The great outdoors
5. Nonfiction books
6. Traveling near and far
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Fun places to check out in the Bay Area
- My career; goals and plans for the future in all areas of my life
- Improving and developing relationships, both my own and those of others
- How to get teenagers to engage in therapy if they're dragged in by parents
- How to workout with a bum leg
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up with friends over wine or food, usually at their place after their kids are asleep.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am hungry often, and eat five times a day. If I complain of hunger, it means I need to find food in less than 30 minutes; otherwise all conversation orbits around restaurants and cooking until I satiate my grumblings. Clearly I carry snacks.
