There are so many challenges, obstacles, and trauma in our lives that it can be overwhelming at times. You don’t have to go it alone, that is why I am here to listen and help you with tools to overcomecope these challenges. I will be here to support and help you through any difficulties in your life. The journey can be tough at times, but we will push through it together.

I was born and raised in San Francisco California and currently reside in Lassen County, California. Most people don’t know where that is, so if I say where the Dixie fires were several years back, that is where I am at. I have a degree in Psychology from Ashworth University, an MSW from Walden University, a Computer Science degree from University of San Francisco, certification in domestic violence and suicide prevention with the state of California, undergrad is in law, and a Civil litigation paralegal certificate in criminal law.
