I am an LCSW working as an integrated behavioral health therapist at a local public health department. I am only able to serve clients who receive physical health care at the Orange County, NC Health Department. I serve a wide variety of vulnerable clients including BIPOC, immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ, perinatal, uninsured, underemployed, many of whom have experienced layers of trauma and systematic discrimination. I have a special interest in helping people affected by substance use. I speak Spanish and English. I am interested in collaborating and networking with people who are doing similar work.
