While earning my undergraduate degree, I enjoyed learning about different cultures and societies. That interest led me to look at individuals and how they respond similarly and differently to life’s situations and their surroundings. Now, I help individuals and families appreciate themselves and others. I enjoy helping people attain skills to adapt or change their thinking, feelings or behavior so they feel more comfortable with their life and the people in it. I use a variety of therapy techniques because every client deserves a personalized approach.
I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling from Trevecca Nazarene University. I am credentialed by the State of Tennessee as a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Mental Health Service Provider designation, and I am also a National Certified Counselor. My professional experience is varied in settings and age groups. I have had experience with clients who have significant enough issues to require in-patient treatment. I have also had experience in community mental health settings where I worked with families and individuals to help them achieve more peace and stability in their lives. As a school counselor, I worked with children, parents, and teachers to help children thrive in their schools. In my private practice, I have worked with people who want to change and improve their lives.
