About

I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology from the University of South Carolina and a Master's of Arts degree in Mental Health Counseling from Webster University. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My education and experience has prepared me to counsel individuals, groups, children, adults, and adolescents.
Counseling provides the opportunity for growth and self-discovery in the context of a safe, supportive, and therapeutic relationship. The theory that guides my approach to counseling is Cognitive Behavior Therapy, which means that we will together identify how your cognitions (i.e., thoughts and beliefs) impact your feelings and behaviors.
What an honor and a priviledge to assist you through life's transitions. I am here to help "Develop a Healthier You."

Upstate Counseling Center, LLC's Groups

Parenting Group

This is an 8-week Virtual Parenting Group that meets once a week on either Thursday from 6pm-7:30pm or Saturday from 10am-11:30am via Zoom. Parenting classes are educational courses parents attend to learn about caring for their children. Parents attend the classes based on court orders, or simply as a way to learn better parenting skills. The primary goals of parenting classes include improving relationships between parents and their children, and teaching parents how to deal with the daily responsibilities of maintaining a home and family, in positive ways.
