I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and came to Boston when I was nine years old. I have no degree (yet). My education includes completing the Addictions Counselor Education Program at the University of Massachusetts in Boston in 2011, various Restorative Justice trainings around the country within the last several years. I most recently completed the six-month-long Internal Family Systems (IFS) level 1 training. I’m currently working on accumulating the necessary hours and additional training to receive my certification as an IFS practitioner.
