Everyone has a story and their own journey. Our story must be heard and accepted. I love counseling because it gives a person the opportunity to tell their story in a place that is accepting of who they are. It is a place that also helps each person explore what has happened so far in their story and where they are now, and what direction their life is taking them. To accept their story themselves and find joy and peace in it while also giving them a chance to grieve where they need to.
Whether it's the loss of a loved one, overcoming trauma, adjusting and living with a disability, or simply needing to explore one's direction in life, my purpose as a counselor is to give each person the space that they need. I try to create an environment that allows children, teens, and adults to laugh, cry, or simply be. To find joy and peace, they need to have a happy life and thrive during the struggles that come their way.
I graduated with a Master's in clinical rehabilitation counseling, allowing me to effectively work with people with terminal, long-term, or short-term disabilities, including physical and cognitive issues. I was also trained in play therapy with Cheryl Willoughby LPC-S, RPT-S as my supervisor during this time. Before this, I worked in human services, first with adults with intellectual disabilities and then working with families who have a child(ren) with a disability. These experiences have led me to value the therapeutic experience and see the hope that is in each person's story. This has, in turn, helped point me in the direction that has landed me where I am today.
