LSWAIC, MSW, M.Ed.
I operate under a critically conscious,
This means that I recognize that I am a part of the system of oppression;
that I work to dismantle that system (concurrently);
and that I recognize the community cultural wealth (social and cultural capital) that each individual brings to the table.
This awareness is a combination of my lived experience and my professional training which gives me an advantage in challenging systems while deeply understanding individual experiences.
I believe that change can only happen through human connection.
My goal is to provide a space that allows individuals to work through and grow into who they want to be.

"I want people to feel like they belong. That the space that I hold is just for them."
Love takes off the masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within.
I use the word 'love' here not merely in the personal sense but as a state of being, or a state of grace—not in the infantile American sense of being made happy but in the tough and universal sense of quest and daring and growth.
