I wanted to become a counselor due to my experiences as a teenager, when I truly needed one in my time of need. I had mentors to help guide me along, but never had therapy. My goal was to be the person whom I needed when I was young and do my best to prevent people from experiencing what I went through. It helps that my given name means “good listener.”
I also have a background in military culture. My father was in the Air Force for over 20 years and we traveled abroad, spending most of our time in Japan, where I got to have the opportunity to experience the Japanese culture. Because of my background, I am more open to different cultures and beliefs.
