An education in Public Health and Social Work provides me with a unique lens to approach challenges. Together, we can find sustainable ways to heal and grow. Specialized training in trauma, grief, and mental health have allowed me to successfully work with adolescents and adults. Additionally, I have experience working in medical settings and with individuals and families with end-of-life care. My intersecting identities promote empathy in working with people of all backgrounds.
