About: It is of the utmost importance to validate individuals and families, and I consider it a privilege to work with individuals and families at those times when they are courageous enough to seek support. Ultimately, my goal is to help people experience their vulnerability as a strength. I pride myself on being able to connect with clients of all ages. I have found that using a dynamic and adaptive approach has allowed me to get to the heart of issues, relatively quickly. Specifically, I often use art, expressive therapy to assist with communication. I feel my role is to create awareness. I believe it is my responsibility to hold hope for individuals and families until they can see that hope for themselves.
