“As I have multiple lived experience having been raised in a single parent household escaping Family & Domestic Violence. I provide a strengths based approach with lived experience with trauma and family separation. After many years of working with homeless young people, veterans, frontline emergency workers in the USA and Australia I believe I can share the journey with clients by providing unique insight to trauma, divorce, child raising, and the rest of life’s challenges that we are faced by.
I also do mental health peer work groups with people who are living with schizophrenia, bipolar and more.
I look forward to walking alongside you as you live in your community grow and develop a new identity for a better life”
