WHY I AM A COUNSELOR: 

I decided to become a counselor in 2008 to better serve those who are returning to society. I have also become a counselor to give back to the community that I once took from. I have found that recovery is possible no matter the circumstances. I hope to work and walk with individuals on their path of recovery. I enjoy the freedom I find in working with people.

GOALS:

I have accomplished one major goal this year and that was opening up a clinic in Albuquerque to better serve my community. I continue to obtain certification to better serve my community. Another major goal of mine is to change the hiring practices and time off offered to those of us that work directly with the community. This is already happening in both facilities. I would also like to see improvement in the communication and delivery of mental health services in our state. 

INTERESTS:

Family outings, poetry, football and relaxation.
