What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

My path to becoming a therapist was certainly not linear. However, I believe my previous jobs in government, education, and corporate America, and my life experiences both good and bad, have prepared me for this rewarding profession. Because of my passion and commitment to empower and give others hope to move towards healing to live their authentic lives, I know firsthand that this profession chose me. And for that, I am forever grateful.

Work History

As a therapist, I've gained a wealth of clinical experience working with clients ages nine to seventy from diverse backgrounds in a residential home, inpatient, intensive outpatient, and outpatient rehab centers, community mental health agencies, and while in private practice. These clients have been diagnosed with mood disorders, trauma and stressor-related disorders, substance use disorders, alcohol use disorders, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, co-occurring disorders, gambling disorder, intermittent explosive disorder, conduct disorder, and acute stress disorder etc. I have also supported clients going through life transitions, grieving the loss of loved ones and pets, as well as, struggling with low self-esteem, work stress, family conflicts, parenting issues, couples' problems, and career aspirations. Furthermore, I have experience completing Driving Under the Influence (DUI) evaluations and facilitating DUI Risk Education classes, Early Intervention services, and DUI counseling.
