 CEO & Founder, BS, MAT, MAEL, Principal, Director, Educator, BST, PSR, QMHP, Clark County Children's Mental Health Consortium Participant

"I completed my Bachelors in Psychology and Biology at Roosevelt University on the beautiful lakefront of Downtown Chicago, Illinois. Next! Off to Dominican University in River Forest, Illinois where I earned my first Master's Degree in Teaching. Following that was my 2nd Master's coursework in Educational Leadership at Concordia University in River Forest, Illinois. It was in Nevada, at Sierra Nevada where I completed the 200 field hour leadership work for an endorsement for Principal and Building Administrator. I have been in the business of human services with multi-state educational experience for 20 years. I don't fit into broken systems enforcing broken ideas that don't support best practices, or serve the whole child, teen, adult, and family; so I created one. I found the motivation to start this organization after realizing that the pattern would keep repeating across the nation that there are too many schools that crank out kids ill-prepared for independence. It mattered to me. Still does. But, through Spirit & Mind, I'm available to freely serve, create, and employ best practices that will truly plant the seeds for tomorrow's harvest in the lives of children."

BA, MAED, Students with Special Needs Facilitator/Autism, Educator, BST, PSR, QMHA 



"I completed my Bachelors in Special Education with a specialty in the spectrum of Autism at Regis University in Denver, Colorado. I went on from there to earn my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Concordia University in Portland, Oregon. I went from working in the schools to providing services in the community as a BST and PSR Provider simultaneously. From there I became an International educator. I have been in the business of human services, educational, and international education services in the U.S. and China for 15 years. I have a desire to inspire before I expire! I believe in the Mission and Vision of Spirit & Mind Behavioral Services because it echos my philosophy. We really do what's best for kids and that's what this is all about. They are who this is for. "I believe the children are the future. Teach them well and let them lead the way..."

Why is Speech Therapy Important? Communication is a building block upon which we construct other life skills. When communication is impaired, there is little chance for success in the classroom, in making and keeping relationships, in literacy or in learning, according to the website of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association. Children without the ability to communicate have difficulty understanding classroom instructions and cannot participate in class discussions. This leads to failure on assignments and to the perception that others may have that the child is “dumb” and cannot learn. This is similar to the problems older people have when their hearing and sight deteriorate. Their worlds shrink so much that others believe them to be senile when, actually, they just cannot respond correctly because of inferior input. Many of the communication problems adults have could be lessened or accommodated if they were discovered and treated in childhood.

BA, LCPC, BST, PSR, QMHP,

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

"We provide IOP groups, individual, group, and family therapy to children and families of all ages. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor.

I studied at Walden University and earned my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in Trauma and Crisis. When I initially began my Masters, I studied Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling. Due to my educational experience, I was afforded the opportunity to study both family systems and individualistic treatment approaches. Utilizing empirical evidence based approaches, person-centered, and holistic perspectives, my goal is to assist individuals and families to find the underlying sources to their life challenges while assisting with helping them gain their desire outcomes.Many of my past and current experiences have revealed that many of the challenges that are faced by most are a direct result of unresolved trauma, negative thinking patterns, limited information, and life experiences.

I am a survivor of significant trauma as well as have a passion for addressing issues surrounding diversity and community challenges that often impact mental health. I believe in the philosophy of Spirit & Mind because harmonious energy is imperative to reaching goals in human service."
