When did you join RMHC? May 2020
Why do you work at RMHC? Growing up on the Range, I have seen first-hand the struggles of connecting to and remaining connected to mental health services. I became a social worker to make a difference. I value client connections and person-centered work. On the Range there are a lot of barriers and I recognize that fact and seek to make things work to allow individuals and families access to services and needs.
What should clients know about you? Mental health is a continuum, we all have mental health. It is SO brave to seek out services and actively participate. I am here as a resource; the strength is within you as an individual or family seeking services. I focus on person-centered work and empowerment. I am passionate about this work.
