As humans, none of us are immune to suffering. This suffering is an opportunity for deep growth if we can learn to harness it and use it for healing. We cannot avoid suffering, but we can learn to release needless suffering that presents itself as depression, anxiety, and other mental illness. Each of our experiences has something to be gained, little gifts, if we can find them.
With a strong capacity for empathy, I do not shy away from meeting my clients in the dark and gently guiding them toward the path of authenticity, congruence, and wholeness.
From the frameworks of attachment and humanistic approaches, I use an integrated approach to work with each client in a way that fits their own unique experiences. I have a passion for working with military, law enforcement, first responders and their families.
We are all on a path toward becoming better humans and this work truly is a privilege of which I am honored to do.
I obtained my undergraduate in addiction psychology and went on to pursue my master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of the Cumberlands. In between programs I volunteered with Crisis Text Line as a crisis counselor. I was also a member of Chi Sigma Iota and trained with Youth Mental Health First Aid. During my education I also did training for TF-CBT. I have a passion for learning and am continually pursuing continued education and trainings.
