I am licensed in Mississippi with more than 17 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, trauma and abuse, & parenting issues. I also have experience working with motivation, self esteem, and developing the practice of healthy boundaries. Boundaries define who we are and who we are not. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion while presenting Truth in love. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a healthy change. I practice holistic Christian based counseling. Most people do what they do because they believe what they believe. This is what the Word of God says - "As a man (or woman) thinketh in his (her) heart, so is he (she)." I am just a guide and my aim is to help you achieve your goals by setting them yourself after dealing with whatever issues or concerns you desire to discuss.
I received my bachelor degree (1984) in Religious Education from Mississippi College in Clinton MS and in 2005 I graduated from USM with my masters degree in Education with emphases on counseling.

She is the best. She's a Godly woman that loves the Lord. She's direct and doesn't sugar coat things. She challenges me but yet cares deeply.
