I am originally from San Diego, CA and moved to South Florida in 2008 to be closer to some of my family. I decided to go to graduate school for social work in hopes of becoming a therapist. I graduated from FAU with a Masters in Social Work. I genuinely love the path that I have chosen. It is challenging and incredibly rewarding.
I have worked primarily in the addictions field but with that comes experience in working with trauma, depression, anxiety, family issues, relationship issues, self-esteem issues, among other things.
After becoming pregnant with my daughter, I became motivated to study perinatal mental health. I don't believe there is enough education and support out there and I hope through continued education and working with people who are moving through the journey to parenthood (or are already parents) I can make a difference!
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, making up ridiculous songs to sing to my kid, listening to podcasts and thinking about where I'd like my next adventure to be!
