I value creating relationships and conversations that strive to identify your strengths and abilities. I believe that people are unique, capable and strong. Sometimes we face challenges that cause us to question that strength. At times, we can all benefit from a conversation with an objective, empathic person trained in listening and asking questions.
I earned my Masters Degree in Social Work in 1995 from the University of Illinois at Chicago. I have practiced in the areas of foster care, residential services, inpatient treatment, hospital social work, teen parenting, emergency room psychiatric assessments, and homeless populations (specifically LGBTQ young people).
I earned my Licensed Clinical Social Worker in 2007 and in 2016, I became approved by the Texas State Board for Social Work Examiners as a Social Work Supervisor.
