My professional and academic history over the past 35 years has taught me that personal goals and accomplishments are important and valuable. The most revealing and poignant experiences on my path is through working in service with others on their journey - this is my greatest learning. The qualifications and credentials I have earned include: Licensed Independent Substance Abuse Counselor (LISAC), National certification as a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC) and educational degrees include MA, Education: At-Risk Youth & Community Programs; BA, Psychology & Minor in Organizational Psychology.
I am a life-long learner and participate in continuing education for my professional career. I remain curious and cultivate my own self-care through creative learning activities. I have taken numerous expressive arts classes and workshops for the love and practice of art-making in various artistic mediums. I am a trained SoulCollage® Facilitator. As a Soul Collage® facilitator I believe we honor our creative expressions to engage with the internal parts of ourselves. We serve as witness for others to explore and to create through a montage of visual storytelling and healing.
