I approach life with a curiosity and driven sense of purpose. I have a natural curiosity and appreciation for cultural considerations. I have worked in the field for the past 8 years from nonprofit organizations, outpatient substance abuse facilities, crisis on call agencies and judicial system, I know life is never a straight line, and there are always twists and turns. I can help you navigate those twists and turns, much like a GPS system. Prior to my experience as a marriage and family therapist, I was a stand up comedy, I try to bring humor into the room whenever possible as I believe laughter especially during those hard jolts and twists in life, is the best medicine. My passions are dinosaurs and animals, I have a leopard gecko whom is like a child, and I enjoy making people laugh, even for free.
