I graduated with a bachelor’s in social work in 2003 from the University of Central Florida and a master’s in social work in 2004 from East Carolina University. I have been practicing independently as a licensed clinical social worker for over 14 years. Helping others has always been at my core. I have extensive training and experience in family systems and childhood trauma and have worked in a variety of settings, from small non-profits to larger governmental agencies. I take a person-centered approach, meaning each individual’s experience is unique to them. What is beneficial to one person is not beneficial to another. I take time to understand what you are experiencing in the current moment and stand alongside you to help you achieve your goals and desires. I integrate mindfulness, gratitude and solution-focused approaches when working with individuals. Life circumstances may not be able to be changed, but how you experience them can.
I moved to Colorado in 2017 and previously lived in various locations in the US and Japan. I enjoy traveling, experiencing new cultures and trying new things. When not working, you can find me exploring my creative side, from photography to wood working.
