About me

Hello!

I am a trained clinical social worker with 16 years of experience. My experience is in major hospital systems in New York City, Houston, and New Jersey. Most of my experience involves bringing tranquility, organization, and resolution to very complex and emotional situations. I have interacted with many individuals, using cultural sensitivity to navigate diverse backgrounds.

In my work, I have been involved with hundreds of individuals and families during times of crisis and life changes. My goal is to listen to what is causing stress and offer the support needed to overcome it. I believe that problem-solving is a learned trait, and I hope to offer some tools on how to navigate these situations for a more optimal outcome.

I have traveled to various cities such as Bangkok, Paris, Madrid, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Cancun, Caribbean, London, Amsterdam, San Diego, Chicago, Oklahoma City, Memphis, Orlando, San Francisco, Montreal, Calgary, Banff, Edmonton, and more. During my travels, I mainly focus on learning about the culture and understanding the history of the area and its people.

My passion is to help and coach people to be their best selves!
