I have over 15 years of experience as a clinical mental health counselor, educator, and coach. My style is eclectic and based on each client’s individual needs. My philosophy emphasizes the importance of self-awareness, positive relationships, and empowerment for success, and I take an action-oriented, person-centered approach with my clients. As a former school counselor, I offer educational counseling to assist students in developing social and academic skills, as well as assist parents in addressing educational needs. My passion is helping anyone with ADHD, and I work with adolescents, collegiate, and adults of all ages to develop coping strategies to foster personal growth and development.
I have a background in managing budgets and projects while ensuring alignment of financial resources with organizational priorities. I work with entrepreneurs and professionals to help them lead more effectively, get clear on their priorities, complete tasks, and delegate more effectively by understanding how their brains function best. I can provide leadership assessments such as 360 and the Workplace Big 5 as well.
I earned my master’s degree in counseling as well as an MBA from Wake Forest University (Go Deacs!) I look forward to working with you!
