I enjoy helping people identify their own strengths and how to use them to achieve their goals. I like to use a variety of approaches to create an individual plan that meets each client’s unique needs. The best part of my job is truly getting to know each client, watching them grow as a person, and gain the confidence they need to overcome the obstacles in their lives. I attended University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine where I had a practice emphasis to work with immigrants and refugees. I have a great deal of experience working with very diverse populations as a nurse, victims advocate, counselor to offenders re-entering the community, and I have 5 years of practice. My personality is outgoing, straight-forward, and compassionate which helps me to create a safe space for clients to feel free to express themselves honestly without judgement.
