I believe that life doesn’t exist without challenges, and every challenge presents an opportunity for growth. I have a very client-centered approach, empowering clients to embrace perceived weakness and utilizing them as strengths, while providing understanding, compassion, and support.
My Professional Background
I have experience in several challenging settings, including working with children, teens, and families impacted by homelessness, severe mental illness, and women struggling with eating disorders. I also have experience working with clients from a faith-based approach, integrating Christian values to promote healing.

I’m a foodie who loves many cuisines, as well as challenging myself in the kitchen to try various recipes. I also enjoy spending free time near the water, which was a pretty big motivation to relocate to So Cal from the Midwest.
