About

"The Importance of Life is Healing and overall Happiness." As your therapist, I will begin by meeting you where you are emotionally and mentally. I have over a decade of experiences working with children between the ages of 6-17 and adults 18-60. I have worked within a wide variety of outpatient mental health programs, psychiatric hospitals, and school systems including Desoto County Schools. I received my Bachelor's Degree at University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) in Psychology, my Master of Arts at University of Phoenix in Psychology, and a Master of Science at Grand Canyon University in Professional Counseling.
I generally began using TF-CBT, Cognitive Therapy, Dialectical Therapy, Client-center approach, and if need be Behavioral Analysis.
I would love to provide you all with services. I have been in the field for over a decade and have a general love for what I do. People are important and deserve to be heard.
