I am interested in working with those who are reintegrating back into society after incarceration.

My Therapy Style

I see it as my honor and privilege to work with people to support them through their current stressors and difficult times, past trauma, and implementing coping skills to create the life they desire in the future. I have experience working with justice-impacted individuals as well as staff from correctional institutions. I am interested in working with those who are reintegrating back into society after incarceration. I am passionate about working with LGBTQ+ folks, and those exploring their gender identity. My purpose is to empower you to use your strengths to meet your life goals.
