I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, LCSW, for 13 years though this was not the beginning of my journey. For 14 years I owned and managed a biodynamic organic farm growing culinary, medicinal herbs and vegetables. As a Certified Nutritionist I served clients, addressing their nutritional health concerns. I taught and provided many educational classes in my community, helping people develop healthier lifestyles.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I interned at a university hospital in psychiatry and an outpatient inner city mental health clinic. I have worked at a state mental health hospital, a children’s agency with a hospital, and a large community mental health facility where I organized a grant funded program for women.  I have facilitated workshops, groups, and volunteered at mental health agencies.

My LCSW was the beginning of my journey to provide mental health support to clients. Mental health is an ever changing and dynamic field of study. I am EMDR trained, Reality Therapy Choice Theory certified, and have trained in CBT, DBT and as a certified addiction educator taught classes for five years.

What has become very clear to me is our health and wellness, our vibrancy of life is not dependent on one thing. We become healthy when we align the three important parts of our being: physical, emotional and mental health.

I began to study mental health from the prospective of healing the total person and completed a Masters in Integrative Health and Healing in 2018. This has equipped me with the knowledge to offer you personalized care from various scientific disciplines which improve well being and mental health.

I believe life is about striving, flexibility and meeting ever-present challenges. It is not about what happens to you, it is about discovering your strengths and what you do to bring about change.

I AM… the two most powerful words in existence.
What you put after them you become.
