About Me

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m originally from Augusta, Georgia, and moved to Athens, Georgia in 2011 to attend graduate school. During the day I work as an addictions therapist at Alliance Recovery Center, a medication-assisted treatment program, where I have been blessed to serve since 2015. I specialize in treating addiction, trauma, and LGBT+ issues.

I believe that everyone is worthy and deserving of love and the pursuit of their true selves. I recognize that I am someone with privilege due to many factors that are out of my control, and I see this as something that obligates me to lift up others who are not as “lucky.” That and a fierce passion for feminism led me to my career in social work, where I began in domestic violence shelters. A desire to continue supporting folks beaten down by trauma led me to work in addiction and to the private practice work that I love.

I’m a homebody by nature and can generally be found cuddling my two kiddos and my three cats. I love reading, writing fiction, and binging Netflix, and I have a possibly unhealthy caffeine addiction. I believe in the healing power of humor and unconditional support.
