What led you to your current position? The path taken to my current position has traveled through the NPS schools, community outreach programs and currently enjoying supporting students and staff in a school partnership. I have come to realize no matter what part of Seneca you work in they are all providing valuable support and guidance for people in need.
What inspires you to do this work? My drive to do this work comes from personal trials that have led me to see the value of someone who can listen, encourage, and hold the experience of our young black and brown youth in a way that relates to their daily life.
What is a recent highlight you’ve experienced in the work? I have been working with this family for over a year and building trust has been a journey of peaks and valleys. However, over the past 3 weeks both client and caregiver have been highly engaged in the therapeutic process while seeking mindfulness practices to become more grounded. I was so surprised I giggled out loud and then happily processed, guided, and equipped the family to practice mindfulness.
