Who am I?

I am a graduate student in my last year of study at Liberty University (Masters degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling). I graduated from Mississippi State University in 2018 with a degree in interdisciplinary studies, including counseling, music, and religion. 

I decided to get into mental health counseling after seeing a growing need for therapeutic intervention on a professional level as there are times when family or friends might not be enough for us to mentally and emotionally process our personal pains and struggles. I believe in the value of verbalizing difficulties and self-exploration for healing and growth.

I love working with:

  • Children, adolescents, young adults
  • College students 
  • Men’s issues
  • Anxiety/social anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress
  • Marital issues
  • ADHD patients
  • Existential issues

I also enjoy working with culturally diverse populations and can accommodate Portuguese speaking clients.

Some of my favorite approaches include: 

With younger children I like to focus on a style of play therapy that promotes exploration and discussion. With teenagers and adults I prefer cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which focuses on actions and the underlying thoughts behind those actions, or narrative/psychodynamic therapy, which focuses on past experiences and how they shape the client’s worldview and thought processes. CBT can be useful in treating anxiety/depression while narrative and psychodynamic therapies can be useful in resolving trauma and understanding existential dilemmas.
