- Life Is Worth Living Because...
- Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable." ----Helen Keller
- My Story
Many years of professional trainings, advanced degrees, multidisciplinary clinical supervisions, study abroad programs in Korea, France and Mexico, numerous and diversified clinical settings and levels of care, served one purpose: the complete, effective, and comprehensive care of children, teens, couples, and families. Working with others who are hurting or uncomfortable allows me to engage the sacred of work, i.e., aiding human beings. I see everyone as divine beings and who deserve all of the richness life has to offer.
I bring many life experience to this work. I have worked in accounting, law enforcement, finance, information services, sales, marketing and public relations, law and judicial systems, the military, civil service, outpatient, residential, and inpatient substance abuse and mental health; sexaully abused children, and have worked with work different populations; such as African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, Christain, Jewish, Muslims, Hindus, metaphysicians, and pagans.As a social worker, counselor, marriage and family therapist, I am professionally and ethically responsible to serve all of the community. I do so with pleasure.
