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

I was a military wife that faced many challenges while my husband was deployed. It was a time that support was needed. I supported women as well as I was given support throughout my husband's military career. This experience influenced me to become a licensed professional counselor to support, encourage, and assist in healing women.

If there was one thing you wish people knew about the therapy experience who might be hesitant to try it, what would that be?

Many people are hesitant to seek therapy because of their fear of being judged. I would like to assure them that therapy is a judgment-free zone. It helps the client understand themselves and learn coping skills to improve their well being.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I create a very comfortable, confidential, and non-judgment space for the client to share her experiences, feelings, and thoughts. This relaxed space is important to build rapport which allows me to assist the client with reaching her counseling goals. The client's therapy is tailored to her specific needs.

Work History

My counseling career was propelled by being an Army wife. I discovered the importance of giving and receiving support. Shortly after, the last duty station, I earned my Master's in Professional Counseling from Liberty University and became passionate about helping clients, especially women, to heal and find balance in their life. I have 8 years of experience working with clients seeking help for depression, anxiety, anger, and low-self esteem. I have counseled in several settings: a medical hospital (pastoral counselor), a wellness center, and a Christian private practice. During these counseling settings: I learned various modalities, which include, but not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Brief Therapy. My Christian values serve as the foundation of my counseling approach and I provide my clients with a judgment-free atmosphere that promotes healing. I use specialized training to target the needs of the client. I help them work through their anxiety and depression by introducing healthy coping skills, teach them how to develop confidence in their abilities, understand what drives their thinking, and help them recognize distorted thinking.
