  • Biography

    The sheer power that exists within the human-animal bond has fascinated me for years. In my professional experience, I have encountered many instances where the bond between humans and animals was unmistakable, and I wanted nothing more than to study this incredible connection and discover how this bond between man and animal could inspire us all.

    My desire to learn more about the connection between humans and animals led me to my pursuit as a graduate student, studying both Clinical Psychology and Anthrozoology. I am currently practicing as a counselor in Sacramento, CA, aiming to bring awareness to the benefits of the human animal bond within a therapeutic environment. After graduation, I aim to open my own practice and animal sanctuary, focusing on the human-animal connection and providing a safe haven for animals in need.

    Open your heart to the healing power of animals.
