Experience

I have worked in the mental health field for over 10 years and have experience working in inpatient counseling, outpatient counseling, and individuals, couples, and group settings.

In counseling, I provide support and guidance on developing coping strategies, increasing confidence, building relationships, and use techniques to improve mental health. I enjoy working with youth, adults, and the elderly, with a wide range of behavioral health concerns.

I have experience working with grief and loss, hoarding disorder, relationship/family conflict concerns, coping skills, self-esteem, self-harming, crisis intervention, behavioral problems, dementia, elderly patients, children, adolescents, and substance use and other mental health issues related to medical conditions.

Message to the Community

My goal for the community is to provide a safe place for all ages to seek the help they need. Along with NEW Health Programs, I am excited to serve the community and work with individuals and their families who may not have access to behavioral health services before. Anyone struggling socially, behaviorally, or medically can benefit from behavioral health services with NEW Health Programs.
