School-Based Therapist; South Washington Alternative High School, Next Step, Pathways, and SoWashCo Online

I work from a strengths-based approach and believe that positive connection can create healing and change. As a therapist, my goal is to empower clients and their families in the healing process to discover their own brilliance and strength. I approach therapy with a systematic lens to understand individuals’ uniqueness and the impact of relationships and social systems have on their lives.
