    As a young child inspired by those in her family who worked in the teaching and counseling profession, Adena became acquainted with her purpose fairly early in life, aspiring to follow in their footsteps. Born in San Francisco, California and raised in the Bay Area, she was afforded the opportunity of being exposed to and surrounded by a variety of cultures, ethnicities, and backgrounds over the course of her lifetime. She cultivated a passion for learning “how to see the world from other’s lenses” and immersed herself into the work of interpersonal relationship building.

    After graduating with her Bachelor’s of Arts Degree in Child & Adolescent Development from San Francisco State University, Adena thrived in the field of early childhood education, working as an educator in both the non-profit sector and private sector, as well as in the corporate realm. She continued to grow in her profession, as she occupied the roles of an educational coordinator, an assistant director, and now serving as a director for an early childhood education organization.

    In 2018, Adena graduated summa cum laude from Walden University, with her Masters of Science in Marriage, Couple, Family Counseling. She continued her partnership with Christian Counseling Center, serving individuals, couples, and families from diverse backgrounds with multi-faceted needs.
    In the Spring of 2020, Adena became a published author, releasing her self-entitled debut devotional book Sophia’s Serenity A Collection of Devotions For Purpose and Peace. Viewing this as an extension to her practice, this body of inspirational work centered around Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.”, proving to be the mantra of her life.

    Concerning her therapeutic practice, Adena seeks to serve and support individuals, children, and families in need of an empathetic ear, guidance, and equip them with the necessary tools that will promote their overall well-being.
