About Me

I'm a Licensed Mental Health Clinician, Doctoral Candidate, Adjunct Professor, and Founding Executive Director of Mind Management Institute, Inc. I have a passion for educating both the community and other clinicians alike by sharing my skills through community work as well as providing clinical supervision. I believe in the power of mental wellness and use advocacy as the vehicle for empowering my community. I embody this work through developing programming to educate and uplift various vulnerable populations in need of specialized care as well as provide workshops and seminars on how to gain mental wellness. I have relentless compassion for the community, especially those suffering from severe mental illness, and I advocate for those who are impacted by the health care disparities within the community.
