Experienced. Certified. Supportive.
It's been a life long dream of mine to work with people. When I was 19, I had little to no confidence in being myself. While studying abroad, I took a Dale Carnegie Course about public speaking and self-esteem building workshop. They made us leapfrog, run around and read tongue twisters. It helped me break out of my shell and learn what it truly meant to be me. The rest, as they say, was history! I was hooked!
After working for a teen youth organization for 7 years in both the New York and West Coast area, I went to Fordham University School of Social Work where I received my LMSW and am now a practicing Social Worker in the mental health field.
I have always had a passion for finding out what makes people of all ages tick. As a Social Work therapist, I have honed my skills of mindfulness, meditation, therapy techniques, reading people and have an excellent grasp of the inner workings of the human mind. I have worked with people every day, all shapes, sizes, and ages. It's my passion and life goal to help people feel happy, confident, fulfilled and powerful in their everyday life.
With my background, I have gone on to create ELIvation, a program that focuses on public speaking, confidence-boosting, relationship coaching, mental health, general motivation, and inspiration!
I have gone through many struggles in my life in regards to mental health and the basic fight of life. It has made me stronger, more aware and an advocate.
I was recently featured on The Kelly Clarkson talking about fatherhood and mental health. So if you are struggling and need a little extra help, reach out today!
