I enjoy being around people who value open and direct communication.
I am warm, genuine, and playful
I love to dance and want to do that more in my life.
I try to read as much as I can. My list of books to read continues to get larger all the time. So little time and so many books! :)
I enjoy being around people who are invested in personal growth and learning more about themselves and how the world impacts them. It does not mean that I will analyze my dates or partners like a client - I do enough of that at work. But it does mean that I enjoy stimulating conversations about psychology and would be happy to explore different ideas with you.
Also, issues of social justice are deeply close to my heart.
