One of my top priorities is the development of trusting and caring relationships with children and families with whom I am working. I believe the building of trusting and empathic relationships is instrumental in helping children and families to be open to change and, therefore, be able reach their greatest potential emotionally, relationally,and socially, It is an honor and a privilege to be able to walk alongside families and be a part of the helping process. In my spare time, you will find me spending time with my family, friends, volunteering, reading, enjoying the outdoors, or traveling!
