Educator, MSEd, CAS
I approach all clients with a trauma-informed lens and work with their mind, body, heart, and cultural background with sensitivity and compassion. I provide coaching and consultative care for youth, teens, adolescents and parents moving through the transitions of life.
Creating new perspectives and approaches to streamlining your needs, we will work on increasing awareness, building better boundaries, assessment, self-discovery, resiliency, and creating an internal sense of control with practical action plans and achievable goals.
I am specialized in working with families with special needs and IEP students, ADHD and executive functioning, as well as members of the LGBTQ+ community.
My approach is a synthesis of one-on-one expressive engagement, intuitive reading, and clinical judgement in order to impact the lives of others. I partner with my clients in a thought-provoking and creative process with the goal to inspire and maximize personal potential. I believe we each have infinite capacity for wellness, health, and growth despite disorder, trauma, or origin story. Let's rise together!
I believe that to best use my skills and talents for the higher good I can empower others to unlock their authentic voices and provide support, encouragement, and direction as they work toward fulfilling their unique purpose.

My Mission Statement
I will continue to educate myself on issues of race, gender, politics, ethics, diagnoses, and best practices. I will continue my professional development as a coach by seeking out credentialed training and certification.
I will respect your personal experience as it relates to your intersecting identities.
I will continue to acknowledge my own intersecting privileges and actively work toward challenging my own biases so that my clients feel safe.
I will continue to question the use of diagnostic criteria and formal assessment measures for racial bias and pathologizing human reactions to trauma.
I will allow clients to be the expert on their own experiences and lives. I will hold space to explore the clients agenda and not my own.
I will make outside referrals to community service providers when appropriate. I will not see clients for needs outside of my scope of practice.
