You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.”
I am a Clinical Social Worker born and raised in Portland, OR. I have worked in the field of clinical social work for the last four years with a specific focus and passion of serving youth and their families.
I recognize the need to offer a clinical insight in treating symptoms related to depression, anxiety, trauma, other mood disorders, adjustment disorders and negative behavioral presentation. I have provided support services in several settings, such as The Morrison Child and Family Services, residential services in Troutdale and Lifeworks Northwest's Intensive Community Based Treatment Services in St. Johns as well as The Pioneer Program as their Class Room Qualified Mental Health Provider.
I have proven to be passionate about working with youth of color and their families and have an empathic understanding of the various barriers and challenges youth of color and their families face with addressing concerns of mental illness and stress. I am motivated in re-framing the thought that those of color do not seek counseling and turning that thinking around. I have worked as a Social Service Worker, Multicultural Coordinator and other social work positions around youth in school settings. I provide cultural responsive and specific services which allows me to work with families through a lens that is both honoring and respecting as they seek assistance in a system of a dominant culture.
I proudly serve all racial and ethnic groups. Likewise, my services are for all beliefs, cultures, genders, identities and customs.
Additionally, I am extremely passionate about dispelling the myth around mental health in communities of color.
