My interest in therapy began as a volunteer with a suicide crisis line in 2015 and since then I have had the privelege of working alongside homeless individuals, women & childen fleeing domestic violence, people living with HIV, and patients and families involved in the hospital system. After completing my Bachelor of Social Work, I worked as a hospital social worker for two years and while completing my Master of Social Work, at the University of South Florida, I have had the honour of providing therapy to a variety of clients through USF Health.
My goal is to create a safe space for people to empower themselves and heal from their traumas. I am a believer in storytelling and that our individual narratives help frame our identities. I am here to walk alongside you as you explore your narrative and unpack all the beauty and pain within it.
Creating a collaborative, safe relationship with you is my first priority. No matter what it is that you're going through, I’m here to work with you and help you grow as you face the challenges life is throwing at you.
