The first session is a great way to see how well we may work together. There is a lot of information gathering at this first session as we get to know one another. Each therapist is different so even if you have been to therapy before, there is a bit of an orientation that takes place. Questions are encouraged. My goal is for you to be comfortable with the whole therapeutic process. If we decide at the end of the first session that I am not the best therapist for you, then I will provide you with some referrals that may be a better fit for you.
Therapy is not a marriage. If you try it and decide you do not like it, you can always stop. Or if you decide that your therapist is not the one for you, you can always try another therapist. Also, you can start and stop as you need. Sometimes, we are only ready to do so much, then we need to take a break. That is okay. Therapy is to help you heal and grow at your own pace.
You decide what you want to work on, what your goals are. I help you identify your starting point and measure your progress. Together we come up with a treatment plan that will work for you. I am here to support you and your life.

M.A. Professional Counseling, Liberty University
I interned in a community health center and a residential treatment program for inmates while working on my degree. While there, I became a Certified Anger Management Specialist and began working with clients who were court-ordered to receive Anger Management, as well as substance abuse issues. After graduation, I opened my practice and worked under supervision in a church counseling center. It was here that I began working with wives of sex addicts and those who had experience sexual traumas. I also began working at a substance abuse center, leading intensive outpatient groups and providing substance abuse education classes. I have continued to gain more education and experience in the areas of sex, intimacy and relationships; trauma; anger management and substance abuse to constant improve my ability to be of support to my clients.
