A: I am passionate about working in the mental health space.  My work has led me to direct counseling as well as to program development and implementation. In my therapeutic work, I gained knowledge by working with youth, families, and individuals living in poverty who live also with a mental health condition.  I am especially interested in dismantling stigma by creating programs and resources that individuals can use for their wellness strategy.
