About me

I am Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the state of Alabama. I began working in the field of social work in 2004. I initially worked in child and family preservation services before moving into the area of juvenile justice. I provided a range of services to juveniles on probation, including anger management and coping skills training, while also working with the family as a whole.

As part of my MSW program at Western Kentucky University, I completed a yearlong practicum with a counseling agency, where I worked with clients experiencing depression and anxiety. In 2016, I moved to Alabama, where I began working in healthcare. Since that time, I have held positions in a short-term rehab facility, hospice agency, dialysis clinic, and skilled nursing/long-term care facility. These positions have allowed me the opportunity to work with clients and families in the areas of depression, anxiety, adjustment/coping skills, life transitions, work stress, substance abuse, as well as grief/loss, particularly as it impacted clients and families during the pandemic.

I continue to build on my skills by completing trainings and workshops regularly in an effort to evolve my practice. I look forward to working with you!

We are just getting to know one another. But Courtney has shared some tools that I am optomistic about. I am comfortable sharing with him. It is still early. This is my first time trying therapy. I feel I trust him. That is amazing to me.
