For many of us, myself included, counseling often becomes a process that refuses to come full circle. We are seeking help, but that help seems to elude us and we struggle finding the right fit or the right method that might provide the direction we need. I was inspired to pursue counseling as a career by my desperate need for help along my life path, and my desire to provide that guidance and compassion to others, in a clear and consistent way. I have several therapy/support animals available for my clients, please ask me about using dogs/pigs/rabbits for help with anxiety and difficulty opening up in the therapy room.

I want my clients to know that although I may not have experienced what you are going through, I want to work alongside you using the training, knowledge, and skills I have developed to provide you encouragement and insight.

Education: M.A., Professional Counseling, Liberty University. M.A., Human Services-Marriage & Family Therapy, Liberty University. B.S. Environmental Policy & Biology, Western Maryland University.
