About Me:

My clinical background and foundation for the last 10 years are within the justice system. There, I obtained my License Professional Counseling (LPC) credentials, and Licensed Addiction Counselor (LAC) credentials in the Department of Corrections. I work at the Jet Wing Facility for Diversus Health where I facilitate the Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) and individual counseling services, Mental Health related. 

My focus is finding the best treatment modality for my clients based on evidence-based models and integrated counseling pertaining to client needs and personalities. I chose Diversus Health due to being able to provide a variety of treatment options for my clients. I have been working with the most challenging clientele in addiction and mental health over the past 10 years, which includes the justice system and community as well. 

In my free time I enjoy hiking and horseback riding with friends and family. 

I've been seeing Blessing Fitzgerald for three years. I was at my lowest point when I first met her. She has used her amazing personality and education to help me become mentally stable. She taught me ways to cope that allow me to be less dependent on medication. Thank you, Blessing! - Client
