Hello! I am currently a graduate student at Liberty University in the Clinical Mental Health Counseling Program. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts Dance Education with double minor in psychology and sociology in 2015. I worked as a Dance teacher in Wake County Schools for around five years and while there learned about mental health needs for people of all ages and how trauma can really impact our everyday lives and interactions. I found myself consistently sitting with children and parents creating a safe space that allowed for the darkest stories of their lives to be shared whether verbally or through dance. Since leaving teaching I have been privileged to have been able to sit with people in their stories related to sexual assault, domestic violence, childhood abuse, spiritual abuse, and Deaf cultural discrimination in various platforms and contexts. In the sharing and reauthoring of stories healing becomes possible and my passion for counseling has truly developed.

As we journey together through your life story and present-day challenges, we will collaborate to uncover your specific core values and strengths to become more aware of your authentic self and desires. Our main goal will be to empower you to be the author of your own narrative and live into the healthy life you desire to create. As a counselor I am highly influenced by Narrative Therapy and I am intrigued by techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectic Behavior Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Play Therapy, and various forms of Art Therapy. It is never too late to begin writing the life story you desire to have, and I would be honored to work with you along that journey.
