About Me

As a Master of Social Work Student, I have immersed myself in the complex and delicate realm of mental health, specializing in various facets of human relationships and emotional struggles. Throughout my work in this field and educational experience, I have delved into the intricate nuances of providing support to couples weathering storms of conflict, individuals battling depression and anxiety, and those who are struggling with substance use. My commitment extends to aiding individuals in processing grief, fostering healthier peer relationships, and honing skills necessary for resilience in the face of life's trials.

 

 I also have experience in serving the justice-involved population, recognizing the unique blend of trauma and systemic obstacles they confront, aiming to provide a beacon of hope and healing within the justice system's confines.

 

My passion for understanding and assisting individuals facing adversity, particularly those grappling with addiction, domestic violence, and mental health disorders follows my own life experiences with these challenges. Allowing me to have an unwavering dedication to promoting mental wellness and relational harmony in a world often fraught with turmoil and uncertainty.
