My Story

I am thrilled to share my collaborative and culturally responsive approach to working with individuals! My goal is to create a space where everyone feels empowered in their unique experience of healing.


I am passionate about values such as body liberation, inclusivity, anti-oppression, and providing affirming care for LGBTQIA+2S/QTBIPOC individuals. As a social worker, I believe in taking action against systemic oppression and acknowledging its impact on mental, emotional, and physical health.


With 15 years of experience in clinical social work, I have worked in various mental health settings and even teach as an adjunct faculty member in a Masters Social Work (MSW) program at Augsburg University. Outside of work, I love running, exploring new places, spending time with loved ones (including my dog!), reading, Korean BBQ, and staying active in the outdoors.
