With an undergraduate degree in Music Therapy, I specialized in assisting children who learn differently reach their academic goals and in assisting adults with developmental disabilities successfully transition into independent, community living. While working with these clients, I gained an understanding of the challenges that they and their families faced in their daily lives. From there, I went on to work with families within a church setting as a Preschool and Children’s Minister and then with at-risk families as a foster parent. My great passion in life is helping families function in a way that is healthy, loving, and supportive.
I am currently finishing my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Liberty University. As a counselor in training, my desire is to collaborate with my clients to identify practical and realistic strategies for change that will aid them in achieving their personal and relational goals. I approach counseling with a cognitive behavioral mindset that acknowledges the impact of neurobiological development and the influence of the systems of which we are a part.
In our leisure time, my family likes to make music, play board games, watch Marvel movies, and cruise the Caribbean.
