My motto is "try to be a rainbow in someone's cloud". I enjoy working with individuals, groups, and families from all ages seeking ways to grow socially, emotionally, and behaviorally. I welcome all "walks of life" from various cultural backgrounds who are facing challenges with mental health disorders, Autism, Intellictual Disabilities, LGBTQ, Youth in Care, family dynamics, and many more.
