  • Georgia, Licensed Professional Counselor, LPC014201


Liberty University, Doctorate of Philosophy, Community Care and Counseling: Traumatology, 2022

As a therapist with a Community Care and Counseling: Traumatology degree I can provide invaluable support and specialized care to potential clients who have experienced trauma. With a focus on trauma-informed care, these I am equipped with advanced knowledge and skills in understanding, assessing, and treating trauma-related issues. I have a deep understanding of the physiological, psychological, and emotional impacts of trauma, as well as the complex interplay between trauma and other mental health concerns. Additionally, with this degree I was trained in evidence-based trauma interventions and therapeutic techniques, such as trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), and somatic experiencing. I prioritize creating a safe and supportive therapeutic environment where clients feel validated, heard, and empowered to process their trauma and work towards healing and recovery. Through my specialized training and compassionate approach, therapists with a Community Care and Counseling: Traumatology degree can help clients navigate the complexities of trauma, build resilience, and reclaim their sense of agency and well-being.

Troy University, Master of Science in Counseling, Community Counseling and Psychology, 2014

As a therapist with a community counseling and psychology degree I can offer valuable support and guidance to potential clients by taking a holistic approach to therapy. With a deep understanding of how individuals are influenced by their communities, cultures, and social systems, these therapists can address clients' concerns within the broader context of their lives. We are trained to work with diverse populations and to navigate issues related to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, and other aspects of diversity with sensitivity and awareness. Additionally, community counselors often have knowledge of local resources and support services within the community, enabling them to assist clients in accessing relevant resources to address their needs. Through a collaborative and empowering therapeutic approach, therapists with a community counseling degree empower clients to build upon their strengths, navigate challenges, and achieve their goals while advocating for social justice and promoting positive change within their communities.

Troy University, Bachelor of Science, Psychology, 2007

As a therapist with a psychology degree, I bring a wealth of knowledge, expertise, and compassion to my work with clients. With a deep understanding of human behavior, emotions, and thought processes, I am equipped to help clients navigate a wide range of psychological concerns and challenges. Drawing from evidence-based therapeutic approaches and techniques, I tailor my interventions to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual client. Whether it's managing stress and anxiety, overcoming depression, improving relationships, or addressing past traumas, I am committed to providing a safe and supportive space where clients can explore their feelings, gain insight, and develop coping strategies for positive change. My empathetic and nonjudgmental approach fosters a strong therapeutic alliance, empowering clients to embark on their journey of self-discovery, growth, and healing. Through collaborative exploration and personalized interventions, I strive to empower clients to unlock their full potential and live more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Work History

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Marietta, GA. I welcome young adults and adults into my practice, including couples, who struggle with their emotions inhibiting important aspects of their lives. Many of my clients find that their anxiety, depression, grief, or relationship conflicts interrupt their ability to feel in control of their lives. Often, my clients’ mental health has been negatively impacted by trauma, leaving them with unconscious trauma reactions. My approach to therapy incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness work. I teach clients how to become more self-aware so they can identify what’s happening internally for themselves, with the goal of engaging effective coping strategies before reaching the point of overwhelm. When working with couples, I utilize the Gottman Method to show clients the power that emotions have when it comes to bonding. Sessions with me are collaborative, creative, and exploratory as clients talk honestly about how they’re doing and what’s happening in their lives. I earned a doctorate in Education in Community Care and Counseling-Traumatology from Liberty University. I am passionate about helping others and a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator, Prolonged Exposure Therapy as well as Gottman therapist. I am a down-to-earth yet intentional therapist who seeks to empower my clients to live healthy, happy lives.
