I graduated from the University of Iowa School of Social Work in 2004 with my MSW. I chose the field of social work to provide specialized services and assistance to individuals and families with similar backgrounds to mine. As a mental health therapist, I have experience with a variety of populations that include, Veterans, Individuals and Families, Parents (specifically fathers) and adolescents who are affect by trauma.
If you find that thoughts, feelings, and urges are getting in the way of living your best life, I will help you develop new skills to address these difficulties.

As a Licensed Independent Social Worker, I also have a passion for education and promoting the profession of social work to minorities. I believe its vital that minorities and people of color understand the important role that social workers provide to the community, state and country.
