My experience working with adolescent teens comes from a therapeutic and academic background as a teacher. My background in immigration provides a perspective that may aid clients struggling with assimilation.


I provide services to people who are often stigmatized, such as polyamorous and non-monogamous populations. I have experience working with the LGBTQIA population and other minority groups, which has influenced my eclectic approach. I believe in building solid foundations that open dialogue in a non-judgmental setting.
