I am a Behavior Support Specialist working with ECS and SBS clients at Maitri Mental Health. I am an advocate, a safe space, a big fan, and a humble guide for my clients. I aspire to be the bridge for clients to their care team. Most importantly, I believe wholeheartedly that we can both dream and accept ourselves as whole.
Over my professional career, I have worked with many different cultures and backgrounds and situations. I spent years working in alternative holistic therapy. I worked with individuals with developmental disabilities watching them gain confidence in their passions. Finally, before Maitri Mental Health, I answered for over 300 Crisis Lines. One moment full of hope is all it takes most of the time.
As for me, I am an adventure gal. Born in the desert and now in the beautiful state of rivers, waterfalls and breathtaking views, you can find me in a kayak or nose deep in a book most days. I am a happy dog mom to Remy, my water loving, goofy German Shepherd puppy. I have already started to build roots here and plan to deepen those going forth from here.
