Who am I?

Growing up in a military family, I developed a passion for serving those who served. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Liberty University, and immediately pursued a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a focus on Military and Veterans Counseling from The College of William and Mary. I plan to return to academia, where I hope my research can not only contribute to our understanding of the unique challenges our military-connected community faces, but lead the way in helping people truly get well. 

Prior to this experience, I have had the opportunity to intern in a faith-based setting and in a non-profit working with individuals who have survived domestic violence. I have had the immense honor of working directly with our military-connected community, primarily military connected children, at the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic.

In my free time I enjoy reading, being outside, spending time with my loved ones, and drinking copious amounts of specialty coffee.

I love working with:

  • Children (7 and up) 
  • Adolescents
  • Young adults
  • Active duty service members and veterans
  • Military-connected individuals
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Life Transitions
  • Self-esteem
  • Spirituality and existential questions
  • Trauma

Some of my favorite approaches include: 

I believe every person is different, and there is no “one size fits all” approach. At the end of the day, my counseling style is person-centered and collaborative. I strive to create a safe and non-judgemental space to explore not only the challenges but also the successes that come with life. I draw from and incorporate elements of cognitive behavioral therapy, existential therapy, mindfulness, and play and art-based interventions. I have had training in Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma.
