Facing challenges in life and learning to overcome obstacles from childhood and adolescence is something that I share in common with many people in our community. These challenges seemed insurmountable while I was living through it. Eventually, it motivated me.

I’ve been blessed with 12+ years of experience working in the counseling field. These opportunities broadened my understanding of humanity, culture, family roles, and traditions; a deeper appreciation of how people are impacted by socio-economics, relocation or divorce/separation.

By working with our children, adolescents, and emerging adults, it increases the quality of their and their family’s lives. I bring to all my clients a respect for the differences between us, but I also embrace our similar need for acceptance, connectedness, nonjudgment, confidentiality, and knowledge.
