Feeling alone, disempowered, and unable to ask for guidance and support when enduring internal struggles is the devastating reality of so many of us. Mental health stigma continues to be very prevalent in our society, cultures, environments, and interpersonal relationships. Despite the significant advances in uplifting awareness, acknowledgement, and need for mental health care in our systems and cultures, internal and external barriers continue to stand in people’s way to accessing quality care. Diversified Health and Wellness’s team is here to provide comprehensive, inclusive, and effective care for their clients.
I am passionate about whole-body mental health care and believe there are many facets which contribute to our mental state. I am a firm believer that treatment requires a whole-body understanding and approach to cultivate meaningful and lasting change into one’s life and day-to-day state of being. Being a certified yoga instructor and reiki practitioner, I bring focus to what is alive in our bodies on a given day. I work to make connections between one’s thought patterns, behaviors, and how we experience emotions in our body. Although we do not choose what we experience in this life, I encourage clients to exercise agency in how we respond and narrate our experiences.
I have a Bachelor of Arts from Skidmore College, NY. In my undergrad studies I double majored in Psychology and Social Work. Currently, I am attending Washington University in Saint Louis for a Master’s in Social Work (MSW), concentrating in Clinical Mental Health. Human behavior is my greatest fascination and one of my greatest passions in life and I am so excited and honored to work with the incredible team at Diversified Health and Wellness.
