Although therapists don't share about themselves in the same way that clients do, knowing some personal things about your therapist can be helpful. I come from an extended multi-cultural family and have experience navigating several overlapping communities. I have also traveled multiple life paths, as a professional soccer player, musician and songwriter, and audio engineer. I therefore know that there are many streets to walk, and many ways to walk the same street. And as a parent, I know that sometimes a nice walk turns into a frantic run.
I continue to grow as a compassionate and balanced person by playing music, hiking, reading, and working on my jump shot.
