About Me

Welcome! I am a licensed professional counselor in the state of West Virginia. I have over six years experience experience working in the mental health field. I have worked in a variety of settings including inpatient, outpatient, community mental health, crisis and addictions. I have the most experience working with depression/anxiety, life transitions, grief/loss, and trauma. I also have experience working with addictions and co-occurring issues that accompany addiction disorder. I provide reality based services utilizing Adlerian models of treatment and a strength-based approach. I specialize in depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, grief/loss, and addiction.

I am an (LPC) for WV and a National Certified Counselor (NCC). Currently, I am working towards obtaining obtaining an Approved Licensed Professional Supervisor (ALPS) credential which would enable me to provide supervision services to other practitioners to become licensed. Additionally, I am attending coursework to obtain my PhD. I have worked in a non-profit that provides counseling services utilizing multiple modalities to serve clients. I have worked in crisis units (CSU), inpatient, outpatient, community mental health, primary care, and in addictions.

I enjoy painting, pop movie culture, online gaming, traveling (when permitted), and participating in community events. I absolutely love learning about new cultures and exploring communities.

I look forward to working with you and exploring how we can get you back to living your best life!
