A petite sirah attempting to find meaning in a world celebrating hedonism, superficial beauty, and the quest for treasure.

Attempting to communicate the thoughts, emotions, and experiences which have haunted my essence, hoping to find commonality among others and a sense of understanding.

Concaving into myself attempting to find my own understanding so it can be shared, and recoiling from the world in an attempt to protect that which is so fragile, sensitive, and dear to me

Attempting to find the validation and reassurance from music, movies, and art while only receiving a fraction from fellow human beings

Deciding what to challenge, embrace, and internalize can be exhausting

When does this human existence become more smooth, aligned, and understood

Will it ever?

I am a mental health professional in love with art, of various expressions. My career focuses on understanding health and fitness, acknowledging when a person has become unbalanced in their obligations, and determining the best customized approach for helping clients recover and heal. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, participating in outdoor activities, and exploring cuisines and cultural elements of my environment.
