Nice to meet you! I am a 23-year old from Los Angeles, California. I grew up here with my mother, father, younger sister and younger brother. I graduated with honors and a B.A. in Psychology from UC Santa Cruz in 2010, then moved back to Los Angeles, where I live with my family. I also have a cat named Ziggy, whom I adore. I have raised her since she was a week old, and she is my pride and joy! I love every aspect of psychology, and I am most definitely a “people-person!” I plan to attend graduate school in the fall of 2012 and would like to get a MFT or MSW.
