I'm originally from a small Navy town in Georgia called Kingsland. I graduated from Georgia Southern University with a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in Africana Studies in 2006. I then graduated from Capella University with a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling in 2014. I became a Masters Level Certified Addictions Professional and an Internationally Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor in 2014. I am a Qualified Supervisor for Mental Health Counseling interns as of 2021 and a Certified Advanced Level Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) Practitioner as of 2022. I have over 15 years worth of experience in the mental health/ substance abuse field.
One of my greatest passions is working with young people that are trying to cope with major changes in their lives. I love to help them bring out their natural talents and use those talents to make sense of what's going on in their lives. I enjoy using music, games, and different kinds of art in my work with individuals and families.
