If I had to declare an answer to the question of Life, the Universe, and Everything, it would be a Venn diagram of these three things: 1) Mental Health, 2) Culture, 3) Dogs.
Animal-Assisted Therapy, resting at the convergence of my Venn diagram, is my personal 42.
To the surprise of no one, I am a licensed professional counselor with a specialty in animal-assisted therapy and a background in cultural anthropology.
I'm also a writer.
Now you know why all my videos, blogs, social media posts, speaking engagements, articles, and books tend to wax poetic on self-care, multicultural counseling, and Benji (my therapy doggo).
Perhaps that's not entirely fair, because I sometimes post pictures of my fish, but generally you'll know what you're getting into if you keep clicking through this website. Thanks for visiting! xoxo
