I am a graduate of the University of South Alabama, with a Master's of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I hold a National Certified Counselor (NCC) Certification from the National Board of Certified Counselors. I am working towards my next state licensure under the supervision of Melinda Rader, MS, LPC-S.
What does counseling mean to me? For me, counseling is a passion in guiding and assisting a person towards balance in their life. I believe that as individuals, we are multilayered with our experiences shaping the way we think, behave, and respond. I strive to professionally work alongside each client in achieving their balance.
I understand counseling can be a very vulnerable and uncomfortable process. I am a LGBTQ+ accepting counselor. I provide both face-to-face and online counseling sessions, allowing you to choose either option, or a mix of the two. All counseling sessions are confidential to provide a safe space for you to create, achieve, and attain your goals.
I work with a variety of topics. These can be, but are not limited to: adjustment issues and concerns, anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, body image and self-esteem concerns, codependency issues, development of various coping skills, grief - at all stages, unhealthy relationships with food, concerns with life transitions, sexual orientation concerns, LGBTQ+ issues, time and schedule management, procrastination issues, relationship issues, sleep concerns, various forms of trauma, and women's issues.
