About me

Life can be so hard. I know that it takes great courage to ask for help. I consider it one of the greatest honors of my life to be able to walk alongside people in the midst of their struggles through the field of counseling. I received my Bachelor's in Psychology and Master's in Professional Counseling at Liberty University. I spent 5 years counseling female and male college students surrounding numerous struggles. I then counseled in a private practice setting for 2 years and saw adolescents through senior adults. I have nearly 3000 clinical face-to-face hours counseling people in need. I have helped clients with Anxiety Disorders, Depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Eating Disorders, Trauma, Spiritual Concerns, Adjustment Disorders, Relationship Conflict, and Family Issues. I typically include a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Attachment Therapy, and/or Emotion Focused Therapy to enter into a client’s story. I assess the depth of pain and impact the client’s history has had on one's current affect, thought processes, and relationships. I then utilize various tools to help clients continue to move forward in forming healthier behaviors, emotional responses, self-talk, and relationships. My goal is to empower the client to make decisions that lead to a hope filled future.
