I am currently a graduate student studying Counseling Psychology with the goal of becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor. As cheesy as it may sound, I have a passion for helping people and am grateful to have the opportunity to make a career out of that passion. This blog is a reflection of my thoughts, perspectives and hopes as they pertain to mental well-being.
A little more about me:
I am a coffee lover, mom to a sweet golden retriever and feisty tabby cat, music enthusiast, and much more. I am driven by a fervor for diversity, humanity, learning and compassion. I am also blind and I consider my disability to be a powerful force of influence in my life. My disability largely influences my perspective in regard to my way of looking at the world. I dream of a world where people are not stigmatized by their disability status, mental illness or other life circumstances; a world that accepts you regardless of your sexual orientation, race, gender, ability, etc. I chose to call this blog “Calling All Skeletons” because I want it to be a safe place to discuss mental health, a topic that is highly stigmatized by our society. I hope to assure people that they are not alone while providing them with helpful and insightful resources.
