“What we do is more important than what we say or what we say we believe.” -Bell Hooks

About Me

I strongly admire all that social work represents. From relationship building, self-determination, skill-strengthening, and empowerment to cultivating agency and self-advocacy among individuals and communities. Highlighting the importance of putting systems theory into practice. I apply this concept and take into consideration the biological, psychological, and social-environmental influences on clients and the community.  I also recognize and apply the framework of intersectionality as it relates to her clients.  Emphasizing a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, and anti-racist lens while engaging in therapy. 

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in social work from Colorado Mesa University in 2019. I then graduated from Colorado State University with a master’s degree in social work in 2021. I am currently working towards obtaining my Doctorate in social work from Capella University. 

During my down time, I enjoy spending quality time with my family. listening to podcasts, reading books, cooking delicious foods, shopping, and staying active.
