About MeI have been employed in the behavioral health field for the past 20 years and have had the opportunity to work with a variety of populations. I obtained my Master’s Degree in Social Work from Az State University with a Concentration in Direct Practice and currently maintain independent licensure through the Az Board of Behavioral Health Examiners.

About MeI knew I wanted to work in the Behavioral and Mental Health realm from a very young age. My personal life experience was the reference point for my journey and vision. Because of such I chose to study counseling for addiction and I now practice in that arena.  I have acquired the skill base and knowledge that I believe is helpful to others who suffer on a daily basis from addiction or personal traumas. 
I thoroughly enjoy what I do to help others in therapy; I appreciate the relationships this specialty allows me to build.

About MeI moved to Tucson in 2021 after being raised in Alaska. I have a passion for helping individuals find their own personal strengths, and I have been told since I was young that it is one of my attributes. I received my MSW from the University of Alaska, Anchorage,
where I was exposed to broad cultural diversity and educated about cultural sensitivity. I am proudly in recovery from traumatic
events, great loss, and substance use, and I continually strive to help people know they’re not alone. I moved to Tucson to ‘
spread my wings’ and explore personal growth.
