I obtained a Masters of Social Work (MSW) from the University of New England. I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LMSW-) in the State of Idaho. During my education, I took courses emphasizing on individual and family therapy, with strong emphasis on cultural diversity and sensitivity practice. I embraced the knowledge in my practice and currently working with children, adolescence and adults, engaging them in diverse of forms of counseling, such as: Art and Play Therapy, including Sandtray, music, creative writing, painting and art projects. I also enjoy working with clients in groups and assist them in group settings of learning. I value a direct dialogue with clients to explore their needs and areas of struggles to be addressed. I approach a client’s issues from different angles and tailor my work to the client’s needs. I practice a strength based approach, where client is in charge of their process of change and the plan they develop with my assistance. I learn about client’s patterns of resilience and unique situations.
Respect for each member's individuality is essential to a successful therapeutic process. It is my understanding that therapeutic goals are most productive when all parties involved agree. I do not discriminate gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality and religious preference. I make an effort to always engage clients in life coaching skills, career development and overall improvement in life status whenever possible during interventions. I love to see people heal and smile, preparing to embark on their new journeys in life.
