My self-summary
I am looking to meet people that enjoy intellectual discourse, are emotionally aware, and are curious about the big questions in life.

That said, laughing and silliness are of the upmost importance. Best of all, those who can laugh at themselves.

Spirituality is a central part of my life. I have been a practicing zen buddhist for 7 years. I lived for 2 years in a monastery and have done around 35 week long silent retreats.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a mental health professional working for a non-profit. I provide counseling, crisis stabilization planning, and risk assessment to adults and families experiencing mental health crisis in Multnomah County.

I LOVE what I do. I truly enjoy helping my clients, it gives me a sense of meaning and purpose. And, it is really interesting work, I am always encountering new situations and learning new skills.
