I believe in helping people and bringing awareness to people who struggle with mental health challenges. I hope to motivate and inspire clients to envision more out of their life than the circumstances they were dealt. From working with clients in foster care and low socioeconomics status, to probation of clients who feel that their past has already determine their future. I would love to be that voice in helping you see that you can be successful. I would also like to empowered parents working with their kids by educating them on challenges and providing resources to hopefully help.
I am a straight forward and sincere person, who love to see people succeed in anything in life they pursue. My background is CBT, DBT, and MI. I have been in this career field for 10 years, experienced working in the TANF programs to kids in the foster to resident treatment facilities. Prior to my counseling career I have served 21 years in the military.
I have lived in Alaska for 14 years. I am here for support and education about Mental Health. One of my favorite saying is, ” I would like to make Mental Health cool”. I specialized in working with At-Risk youth and adults who have experienced traumatic events or working through challenging issues like depression, anxiety, trauma, and anger.
