Brief Summary of Professional History: I have served and worked in my community within the mental health and academic fields. I have worked at the university level mentoring and guiding college students at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

This has also included volunteer counseling for Warren Village and Safe House Denver. I’ve enjoyed facilitating group sessions for counselors in training and with court mandated clients running alcohol and drug relapse/recovery groups.
