I am originally from New York and have lived in Raleigh, NC for the past four years. My background is in mental health counseling, and I have enjoyed working with children and families for over twenty years. I have worked with high-risk populations in various settings, including rural communities, hospitals, state facilities, non-profits, and federal programs. I enjoy the work I do, because it allows me to help others and provide resources and services to so many that need the assistance. We are often the voice to many that go unheard and suffer in silence. We work to provide them with hope, support, and guidance.
