Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
I believe that being a therapist is not only a vocation but a calling. Nothing energizes my soul more than equipping people with skills to help them unlock their full potential; to discover the unique gifts that God has given them.
I’ve been blessed with amazing experiences working alongside children and families from a wide variety of backgrounds. I am committed to providing a safe, non-judgmental and compassionate environment where individuals can feel open to address issues and meet personal goals. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.
