I became a therapist to give children a voice and families a pathway to healing. It was a very personal decision for me, as I believe the work I do is my calling in life.
I am a singer. I sang at the world famous Apollo Theater for Amateur Night.
I am a proud parent of a teenage son and two cats. When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I also enjoy cooking, trying new foods and watching movies.

Own your therapy sessions and make sure you get something valuable out of every one of them.
