I remember going through the motions of living life how I thought others wanted me to live.  I was always putting others first and myself second, and although I gained joy from some of these experiences, knowing that I was not true to myself and who I wanted to be made me feel lazy and unfulfilled.  It wasn’t until I began practicing and learning the martial arts that I felt a calling to use the energy I was working with to incorporate it into my daily interactions and introspection.  While I was working on my Masters, the teachings of martial arts and eastern philosophy coincided with my academic lessons in a way that gave me perspective on how I could better myself, my mood, and hopefully the lives of those around me.  Since then, I have felt a great improvement on my outlook and my ability to assist others in battling their own struggles and crossroads.

 

Originally from Upstate New York, I graduated with a bachelor’s in psychology from Keuka College in 2010.  From there, I worked a variety of jobs specializing in mental health including case management, intake assessments, and quality improvement in both Upstate New York and Florida.  While playing in a band and practicing clinical skills on those in a tour van, I began practicing the martial arts and studying eastern philosophy.  In 2021 I graduated with a Master of Social Work from Fordham University and received my Clinical Intern license.  I still play music recreationally and am heavily devoted to my practice of Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and Kung Fu.
