M.Ed.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master’s Level degree in Professional Counseling. For a several years, I worked at a number of higher education institutions in the United States where I was able to provide career guidance, life skills training, and crisis intervention and support to tertiary-level individuals.

Upon my return to Trinidad and Tobago, I worked closely with a non-governmental organization dedicated to providing guidance and direction to the nation’s children and their families. Through this organization, I was able to provide psychosocial support to a number of clients. In addition to this experience, I had the great honour of working in the child protection field in the Child and Family Services Unity at the Children’s Authority of Trinidad & Tobago.

Throughout my professional tenure thus far, I have been involved in several projects which have allowed me to develop greater capacity in stress management and group facilitation. While my passion rests in helping young adults to navigate the sometimes confusing terrain of daily life, I also thoroughly enjoy working with couples and families to assist in addressing any areas of concern.
