1. One of my favorite childhood memories is . . .

Playing with my middle school orchestra at Disney World – it was an unforgettable experience.  

2. I love being a mental health counselor because . . .

I cherish the opportunity to be in the trenches and offer the experience, and support with my clients.  It is an honor and a privilege to be invited into the most vulnerable parts of someone’s story, and I love the chance to learn and grow alongside others. 

3. A life lesson I’ve learned from my clients is . . .

We’re never done.  There is always more strength and understanding to know and take hold of.    

4. Three words that describe my counseling style are . . .

Collaborative, engaging, and direct. 

5. When I’m not in counseling sessions, you’ll find me . . .

Running around outside and exploring the city of Syracuse.  

6. Three people who inspire me are…

My mom, Jackie Hill Perry, and my previous supervisor, Barb Martin.  

7. A quote that I live by is .  . .

A man who isolates himself, breaks out against all sound wisdom. 

8. One thing guaranteed to push me out of my comfort zone is . . .

Public speaking. Every time. 

9. My best self-care technique is . . .

a run or walk outdoors.

10. This is how I found counseling and how counseling found me . . .

In college, I was working in a research lab through the psychology department.  It was through my interactions with other graduate students studying counseling, and my desire to support families and individuals, that I was led to this field.  

11. One thing I could not live without is . . .

My faith, my “village”, and desserts.

12. If I were to tell a friend about mental health counseling, I would say . . .

Despite what parts of our culture might think, it can be for everyone.  An emergency doesn’t have to be the prompt for intentional growth through counseling.  I believe that everyone could benefit from counseling.  

13. The approaches I draw from in my counseling practice are . . .

Person-centered, CBT, Internal Family Systems, Play Therapy, and Care Coordination.

14. Clients that challenge me the most have this in common . . .

Non-stoppers that take “it all on”.
