About Me

I'm a bilingual licensed Master Social Worker in Arizona and a pastoral counselor, I am passionate about assisting individuals in overcoming obstacles and finding a purpose and reason to live a fulfilling life. I am a person with the ability to influence change and persuade decision-makers. At heart, I enjoy guiding and serving as a resource to others. I also like sharing my opinions, enlightening people's minds, and making a positive impact on the world. My friends frequently ask for my advice and value my ideas on a wide range of issues. My followers are moved by how I perceive the world. There is no greater satisfaction for me than to see and experience growth in the lives of others.
