I started my career working with adolescents that were pregnant and parenting in high school. This opened the door to my various experiences working with young, growing adults and families. In the heart of St. Louis, MO, as a school-based therapist, I gained further knowledge of the racial and poverty challenges taking place in our communities. Fast forward three years and becoming a social worker in Colorado, I managed a variety of cases involving children and adolescents experiencing trauma, parental abuse and neglect, couples counseling and mediation, and managing chaotic situations. In this time, not only did it allow me to gain experience in the child welfare and court systems, it reminded me of my true passion and brought me back to my primary focus. I am happy to be back on track with my passion in therapy and helping adolescents, families, and couples in their time of crisis or distress.
