Reaching out is difficult, however you are already on the path if you’re reading this. I would be honored to support you along the way.
I grew up in a rural town in South Georgia where resources are limited but the people are strong. After encountering suffering in myself, my family, and my community, I felt called to a career that allows me to support and empower those around me on their journeys toward
healing, change, and growth.
I received my Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from the University of Georgia and my Master’s of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State University. During my Practicum and Internship, I worked at a non-profit called Positive Impact Health Centers in Decatur, GA. I worked with clients struggling with a wide array of issues not limited to depression, anxiety, PTSD, substance abuse, and
gender and sexuality issues.
I am working under the supervision of Scott Pennington, LPC and Clinical Director of MRC.
My approach is warm and empathetic, down to earth, and not pretentious. Your trust is to be earned, which is why I listen closely and relate to you authentically and non-judgmentally. Together, we can explore the more difficult areas of your life, make sense out of what’s happening, and find ways you can heal and find real relief.
Even though things may feel overwhelming, there is hope and a way forward. It is my belief that you can heal past wounds,
manage a complicated present by uncovering your deep inner strengths, and build a future that is rich and meaningful.
The heart of my work is done from a Person-Centered perspective which is evidence-based and emphasizes empathy, authenticity, and unconditional positive regard. I have studied other models proven to help people with the depression and anxiety such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness based approaches, as well as Psychodynamic techniques that work on deeper patterns so that we can get to the root of the
problem. I have worked with trauma, depression, anxiety, suicidality, relationship issues, substance use, self-esteem, and spiritual/ meaning in life issues.
