I have worked in mental health for the last twenty years. My career focus has been on crisis stabilization for the chronically mentally ill and substance dependent population. I am a Geriatric Mental Health Specialist and have spent my career serving teens, adults, and older adults in residential and outpatient settings. My ancillary experience includes fitness instruction for yoga and Pilates. I believe in incorporating movement and meditation into my therapy practice as clients are able and express interest. My passion is to serve the population at large and reach the under served, as well as those who may not be apt to seek services due to a lack of representation locally. Having a therapist who looks like you, and understands your cultural lens, is paramount to partnering with you to achieve wellness and recovery.
