Accepting new patients. Please call 1-855-632-8280.
I was born in Michigan, and raised both in the Midwest and Southern California. I returned to the West Coast because I missed spending time in the mountains and on the coast. I have a grown daughter and two young girls and am enjoying a second round of parenting. I decided to become a social worker in my youth and am committed to providing patient centered and patient directed care. I have worked primarily with vulnerable populations. Currently I provide therapeutic care in the mental health and addiction field. I enjoy working in concert with people on their individual journeys to recovery.
I work as both a therapist and supervisor in the Mental Health Department. I specialize in administration of human services and enjoy working with my colleagues on projects that improve our quality of care. I provide trauma informed care for women, LGBTQ individuals and persons challenged by both substance and mental health issues. My philosophy of care integrates a strong belief in individual capacity to heal and recover. To this end, I strive to collaborate and develop a plan of care that supports both patient expectations and clinical practices known to support health and well-being. I am committed to social justice and work to contribute to the betterment of all in my off hours. I am glad to be part of an organization that embraces wellness and health.
I love spending quality time with my family, reading, crossword puzzles, visiting with friends, walking in the rain, contributing to my community, seeing movies and art, going to the gym and, on occasion, playing a good video game.
