Social Worker, MSW


As an individual driven by knowledge, I believe vulnerability is both a power and a tool among us humans. We are constantly driven to believe that vulnerability is a weakness. Brene Brown stated “Vulnerability is not winning or losing; it's having the courage to show up and be seen when we have no control over the outcome. Vulnerability is not weakness; it's our greatest measure of courage.”  

I obtained my bachelor's in social work with a minor in psychology in 2022. I went on to an advanced standing master's program at the University of St. Francis where I received my master's in social work in 2023. I specialized in general social work with a focus on mental health where I learned evidence-based practices and trauma-informed care. Throughout my learning journey, I have had the opportunity to receive certification in Sexual Assault Prevention as well as ABA training. I've gained experience through working with at-risk youth and their families, creating and facilitating social-emotional learning groups, and implementing holistic approaches. I also have experience working with the older adult population through my time as a supervisor at an Assisted Living Facility. These experiences have given me opportunities to work with individuals learning to navigate depression, social and general anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, suicidality, eating disorders, and grief and/or loss.

I strongly believe therapy is a team effort in which I work with you, at your pace, to successfully help you in your unique journey. My approaches are strongly associated with team effort and meeting you where you are at. The approaches include a strengths-based perspective, CBT, Play Therapy, and more.

When I am not at work, you can find me cuddled up with my dog (Benito), trying out a new DIY projects, spending time with my loved ones, or working on my own self-growth through podcasts, reading, and meditation.
