I have worked in different settings with individuals such as pregnant/parenting adolescents, living with HIV/AIDS, domestic violence survivors, family of origin issues, sexual trauma, childhood trauma, those involved with criminal justice system, and CPS referred couples/families.

I am 50 years old. I’ve been in and out of therapy since the age of 16 I’ve come across therapist who don’t, gave up on me or just don’t know how to help. I appreciate her, listening and trying to figure out what tools were best for me. She also asked for me to also do work and see what works for me with some of my own ideas. She’s awesome.!
