I have been blessed to have great mentor's, parent's and friends in my life. These people helped shape me to be the person I am today. I completed six years in the Army once graduating from high school. I went on to working in the healthcare profession as a nursing assistant for several years while completing my education. I graduated with my Bachelor's degree from California State University, and with my Master's degree from Argosy University-Bay Area. My clinical focus was in Counseling Psychology and Criminal Justice.
Once I completed my education, I worked in social services at
a non-profit agency as a Resource Center Director, Program Manager and a Marriage and Family Therapist Intern. After moving to San Diego, I became a Program Manager with a non-profit where I was helping birth parents reconnect with their children through parenting services. I have worked as a TERM therapist through Optum Health and Child Welfare Services, I work in my own private practice currently as a therapist; while simultaneously being a Program Manager at a hospital through the County of San Diego.
My passion is to help people find that moment in their lives where they can love themselves, and tap into their own internal strength. I have a wonderful adult son. Being a parent does not define who I am but rather it shapes the kind of person I have always aspired to be. I have learned more about myself and the boundaries I choose to have in life because I am a mother, a daughter, a sister, a professional, a peer, and a friend.
