As a Clinical Mental Health Therapist, it is my goal to extend compassion and empathetic support to clients so that they feel supported, listened to and cared for. I have worked with children, youth, adults, and families both in the United states and Canada. I have a unique background in working with children and their families who are in a residential setting, detention centers and foster care system. I am a certified trauma professional who specializes in working with clients that have suffered life changing events of abuse, death, family separation, and other adverse experiences.
