Hi there and thank you for visiting my Bio. I am a bulldog graduate with undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Communication Studies. From there, I then went on to get my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
My primary clinical experience is with adolescents ages 9-17, but I have worked with all ages. Before joining Miracles, I worked for Children’s Hope Alliance where I worked extensively families with children who struggle with extreme behavioral and mental health concerns. Therefore, youth who face depression, anxiety, ADHD, self-injurious behaviors, and aggression are those that I am passionate in serving. Children are highly influenced by their environment so while working with your kiddos, I will also keep you involved in our work together.
While kids are where I have the most experience, I also have worked with adults ages 18-70. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy with mindfulness techniques to help you live a life of joy and fulfillment. My hope is to build a relationship with all of my clients that combines a welcoming environment but also a challenging relationship that helps you look deep inside yourself.
I believe everyone is still able to change their story, learn from their past, and learn new skills to deal with the inevitable stressors that we all face. No matter your age or what brings you here, I am proud of you!! Therapy is a scary step but hey you made it this far. I look forward to working with you!!
