What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

I have always had a helping spirit and the lessons of life have given me a desire to help others through the fires that I have faced. This drove me to go back to school so i could do it in a professional way with an understanding touch.

What does a first session with you look like?

I will usually ask questions about your life and why you think you need help. Allow you ask questions to help you feel safe with me and allow us to build a strong therapeutic relationship.

Were there lessons in your professional or academic career that left an impression on you, and how has that informed your work today?

Just the changes in the generations and how the battles come much faster and in some cases never ending. I have found that the teen of today need grit that only comes with failure and able to work out the lessons in that failure.

Work History

My work experience has given me a great range to work with relationships in the family. I have work with families with big struggles to build a healthy relationship and life while working for Georgia Department of Children and Family Services. As a Placement case manager I worked with parents that had their children removed from the home to get them back into the home. I Worked with teenagers and the parents while I was a youth pastor helping them navigate the tough times in those relationships. I have dealt with addictions and the damage that they create in people and families as a Rehab counselor. In my personel life I have biological children, adopted children, and step-children giving a unique understanding of living in those relationships. I have work with teen boys that have behavior issues in the home and need help in rebuilding trust in the teen and the parent.
