I graduated from Colorado State University in 2005 with a B.S. in Human Development and Families Studies. In 2011, I received my Masters of Social Work from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, with a dual specialization in Clinical Social Work and Management & Community Organizations. I received my license to practice clinical social work in 2014. I have worked with at-risk populations with co-occurring disorders struggling with challenges such as life transitions, domestic abuse, anxiety/depression, mood disorders, and associated addiction behaviors. My experience working with these populations has granted me the ability to help those suffering with co-occurring disorders, understand "the why" behind their experiences and effectively making change for the better.
My approach to therapy follows this value and I address my clients from a systems perspective, taking into account not only their perspective on their experiences, but also incorporating how their experiences and associated behaviors affect their environment.
