I'm enthusiastic and energetic, yet I also love curling up with a good book or quiet music. I have a career as a psychologist that I love, that inspires me to grow and learn about others and myself. I'm insight-oriented and highly attuned to others. I'm really good at thinking outside the box, seeing possibilities where others are stuck, see shades of gray where others may see only black and white. I have two children who are an incredibly important and joyful part of my life. I am someone who can get excited about a wide range of things. When something new catches my interest that I want to learn more about, I dive into it wholeheartedly. I laugh a lot and talk with my hands when I get excited. I love the synergy that happens between me and another person when talking about or engaging in a shared passion. After all that enthusiasm, I embrace the counterbalancing, calming effect I get from quiet time, yoga, mediation and I'm drawn to the mindfulness-based life. When I need a boost and can't get out of the city, a trip to Whole Foods or a garden center never fail to raise my endorphin levels - it's something about all that earthiness and possibility that gets me going.
