My journey as a mental health and addiction counselor

As a mental health and addiction counselor, I have had the privilege to witness countless courageous stories of resilience and healing. From the individuals and families I have worked with, it has been an honor to be invited into their lives to help navigate difficult pathways together.

Throughout my career journey, I have seen firsthand how accessible treatment, recovery support services, and community systems can create a safe space for people dealing with mental health issues or trying to overcome substance use disorders. I am thankful for the moments when we break through stigma and shame so change can happen.

My passion is in creating an equitable system that allows access to quality care regardless of race or economic status. Being part of the healing experience gives me hope for each person’s unique journey through addiction or mental illness as they move towards achieving a healthier life. My ultimate goal is to see everyone accessing the tools they need for effective recovery no matter where they come from or what life obstacles they may face.
