About me

I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and a National Board Certified Counselor with 8 years of professional work experience.
I spent those 8 years working with a nonprofit organization, helping adults and students with disabilities learn valuable interpersonal skills for the workplace. I worked with groups and individuals and also taught social skills classes in local schools.
Prior to my counseling experience, I had a career in education, and hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in instrumental music education. I still enjoy playing and performing, but I am a teacher at heart!

I have experience in helping clients with ADHD, stress, anxiety, and depression, parenting issues, anger management, life changes, and career difficulties.
I try to work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

Living an active lifestyle is very important to me, and as such, I am interested in the effects of exercise and nutrition on mental health. I love helping clients set goals to improve their mental health, as well as their overall wellness.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

Bo had a palpable empathetic and authentic presence from the moment he introduced himself over both text and video chat. I feel extremely safe confiding in him. He knows how to empower me to navigate my own healing and brings me to my own attention through gentle guidance. I'm inspired by him to show up for our meetings exactly as I am and that allows me to be so present during my sessions. I would highly recommend him to anybody, and I feel fortunate that we have been able foster such a wonderful client/ therapist relationship.
