THOUGHTS TO SHARE:

Education is one of society’s most powerful tools to bridge the divisive gaps attributed to poverty, discrimination, and abuse. My counseling and teaching practices are strongly rooted in empowerment, advocacy, and resilience of both my clients and students. As a counselor, I am privileged to share emotional space with clients as we explore their strengths and build personal autonomy in their health and happiness. Similarly, as an educator, I aim to cultivate an emotionally safe learning environment for students to practice skills, develop reflective insight, and contribute toward others’ journeys along the way.
