About Me

I'm so grateful for Swap-Bot! I don't get to participate as much as I like, but it's really nice to have a place to easily and quickly find people to exchange mail with.

I'm a 30 something social worker/talk therapist for children and families. She/her pronouns.

I love my career! I love to learn and train, and I love getting to talk to such a wide variety of people and learn about their life experiences. It's also an amazing feeling to help people grow and heal!

I love my three pets- Mr. Cat, Tiny (also a cat), Einstein (a bunny!). Einstein's wife Elsa passed away earlier this year. While we all miss her dearly, I think Einstein is enjoying the bachelor life!

Social justice and making the world a better place are important to me. I am currently trying to find ways to increase access to mental health care and to reduce systemic barriers to healing and health.

I have fibromyalgia- it's something new that I'm still learning how to live with. I talk about it fairly matter of factly- it's just another part of who I am!

I'm obsessed with podcasts! Right now, comedy podcasts are truly helping me weather this pandemic.

I'm also obsessed with learning Spanish and would love it if someone would write to me in Spanish!

I've recently started learning how to take care of plants, and am now understanding peoples' obsessions with houseplants! It's so fun and rewarding!

I'd love to write to and hear from people who are interested in poetry, nature, animals, social justice, LGBTQIA themes.

I enjoy vintage and repurposed/upcycled items! I try to reuse envelopes and other items I get in the mail.

Favorite Music

Ethereal, pretty, female fronted indie and folk rock. Music I can dance to. Music that makes me feel something. I'm obsessed with making playlists for different moods on Spotify!

Favorite Books

I love poetry, short stories, and thought provoking novels. I love non-fiction about psychology, therapy, social justice issues, nature, LGBTQIA, women, and creative writing.

Favorite authors/poets: Mary Oliver, Naomi Shihab Nye, Barbara Kingsolver, Anais Nin, Isabel Allende, Andrea Gibson

Interests

Glitter,
animals (especially cats and rabbits!), nature, flowers, butterflies, violin and piano (sometimes I play!), nail polish and makeup, big, brightly colored jewelry and clothes, color (rainbows! my favorites are blue and yellow. My house is pink, teal, green, yellow, and light blue!), biking, hiking, learning Spanish (I'd love to send and receive mail written in spanish!), writing, reading, journaling (especially my bullet journal setup! It took me forever to get it right!), learning, coffee, tea, fashion, humor, travel, sun, being a tourist in my own town, jokes (especially puns!), Arizona, poetry, Kawaii, crossword puzzles, things with hearts on them

Please don't send:

The only holiday I really enjoy is Valentine's Day, so I'd prefer to not receive a lot of Christmas, Halloween, Easter, etc. items.

I also don't really like getting edible or perishable items other than tea.

I REALLY don't like stuffed animals or Disney.

I enjoy learning about other religions and I am spiritual but I am not religious. I don't have a lot of use for Bible verse, Christian ephemera, etc.

Thanks!

Comment: What an absolutely perfect postcard to use for the exchange. And this is the first time I’ve gotten a couple of lines from a nonfiction book, which I find quite intriguing. Thank you very much!
Response: Thank you! It's from a box of postcards that are all vintage books! And that is interesting! I am reading two non-fiction books right now, so the other option was the first and last lines of a book about therapy!

Comment: A few years ago I hosted a Valentine's party at a pizza place for our friends and their kids. It was so much fun! They got to decorate cookies and play in the arcade and exchange cards and goodies. Even the adults admitted to having fun! To be honest I did it because I wanted an excuse to buy lots of those sugar cookies that are covered in red colored sugar. I loved those as a kid but couldn't really justify indulging as an adult. (Not sure why, isn't that supposed to be one of the perks of adulthood?!)
