Professional Experience: I have been working in the mental health field since 2012 in a variety of roles including school paraprofessional, ABA behavior therapist, and day treatment skills practitioner. I have experience with supporting clients on IEP’s that fall under both DCD and EBD special education. I have experience with case management, and regularly collaborate with county mental health workers and education staff.
Special Interests: Currently, I enjoy working with children from preschool up to adolescents and their caregivers to help them learn skills they can use in day to day life while managing their mental health. My prime focus is making sure that anyone I work with feels safe and comfortable. I believe that relationship building is the fundamental base for any client to build with those who work with them. My areas of interest include trauma, post partum disorders, and mood disorders. I strongly believe that everyone has the potential inside them to grow into greatness.
A Fun Fact About Me: Reading is my number one go to for relaxation. I read anywhere from 100-150 books in a year and continually try to surpass myself each year!
