I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and have been a member of the helping field for 15 years. My career began in child welfare where I worked as an investigator for child protective services. I then transitioned into medical social work and finally arrived in the area of mental health where my passion has continued to grow since 2011. I currently serve Veterans with a wide range of mental health and psychosocial needs. As a USAF Veteran myself, I feel fortunate to be able to serve my fellow brothers and sisters in the armed forces. My clinical experience has taken me on many adventures and allowed me to serve individuals in multiple settings including individual, groups, couples and family therapy.
I also serve as adjunct faculty for a major university in the college of social sciences and, have done so for 12 years. I appreciate the opportunity to inspire, nurture and encourage students as they develop their natural abilities and special interests as future helpers.
I am mother to a wonderful young adult as well as a loving rescue “furbaby”. In my free time I enjoy working out, traveling, reading, watching cooking shows but never actually cooking and discovering more of my own potential through healthy self work and intentional learning.
