Theoretical approaches are based on the needs of the individual. I specialize in the Solution-Focused approach. I believe in a collaborative approach. The client is the expert in the problem, so working with the client to solve the problem is the best solution.

I grew up in a dysfunctional family and I wanted a better understanding of the family systems. I was encouraged to seek mental health counseling while working on my first masters degree, so I would be able to be at my best when helping others.
I enjoy going to the movies, hanging with friends, and spending time with my kids.
I listen to music, and laugh with friends.
A Gift for You, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping the homeless. I started this organization in 2019 and I am proud of the work we have done in the community.
