Work History

My diverse clinical approach has allowed me the opportunity to bring my unique therapeutic approach to those who have wide range of mental health disorders. After being in the Social Service field for several years, I have been able to diversify my clinical experience by providing cultural humble services to individuals and family members living with HIV/AIDS. Many of whom were undiagnosed, but also had been severely impacted by sexual, verbal, and physical trauma; substance abuse and homelessness; incarceration and vicarious trauma. Furthermore, most of my experience also comes from working with individuals are identify as being apart of the LGBTQ population which also includes those who are on the spectrum and have not yet identified themselves as members of this community.
