My goal is to help you gain clarity on who you are becoming, what you want from your life, and how to make your hopes a reality.
There is nothing that gives me greater satisfaction than helping people discover their strengths and self-worth. My greatest joy is seeing clients improve their lives and create positive change. As an adolescent, I benefited from counseling which allowed me to navigate my own adjustments, and I’m pleased to now use the skills I learned to help others. My clients describe me as a great listener who gives honest and direct feedback. I create a safe space for change using deep empathy, warmth, and humor.
I wholeheartedly believe in self-improvement and stay abreast on new developments in the field - regularly attending seminars and workshops. With nearly a decade of experience counseling adolescents and young adults, I have helped countless clients create positive change and develop deeper relationships in their own lives.
I received my Masters in Social work from New York University and obtained my undergraduate degree from The University of Texas. Before starting my own practice I provided treatment to children, adolescents, adults, and families at the University of Kentucky's Department of Psychiatry. While in New York I counseled children who witnessed domestic violence at STEPS to End Family Violence. Prior to my time at STEPS, I served as a case manager at Harlem United, where I connected adults living with HIV/AIDS to mental health and medical care in their communities. I have training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Family Functional Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
When I am not at work I enjoy traveling, spending time with friends, and reading.
