I am a social worker who is dedicated to helping people. I work to build a relationship with individuals through being genuine, authentic and trustworthy. I work with individuals to increase their mindfulness and awareness on behaviors which are ineffective or interfering. My goal is to support clients in challenging themselves to learn more skillful and effective behaviors, while also developing a dialectical perspective. I chose Diversus Health because I have a passion for working in community mental health. I started my career in mental health in 2008 at a community mental health center back in California. When I started graduate school I left community mental health but after I graduated I was drawn to return back to it. I feel a provider has to have a love for working in community mental health and I really do have a love for working at Diversus Health and providing quality care and services to those who need it most in our community. Outside of work, my most favorite thing to do is spend time with my family doing just about anything. I enjoy being active and love to work out at the gym and run long distances. A new found interest of mine has been watching professional soccer.
