I’m a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

I’m also experienced, proven and ready to help.

I didn’t start my career as a counselor, I was called to it. I received my undergraduate degree at Mercer University in marketing and management. After 5 years in the marketing field, I realized my true passion was helping others and that I was meant to take on a new career path in life.

Becoming a counselor was the right choice.

It took a lot of work but it was worth it. I earned a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Argosy University. During an extensive internship at Ridgeview Institute, I worked with individuals suffering from various addictions and mental health disorders in their inpatient and outpatient programs. Shortly after completing my internship, I started working at MARR (addiction treatment center) and at DBT South as a DBT Therapist. I have completed formal training in DBT through Behavioral Tech. I am also formally trained in Prolonged Exposure Therapy.

I’m committed to continuous learning.

After practicing behavioral therapy for several years, I have found that sometimes clients need other approaches to help them process thoughts and feelings. With that in mind, I researched energy and breathwork and started practicing Reiki. I have completed Level I Reiki training and I’m actively working on completing Level II training. I am also dedicated to staying current and growing as a professional. It means when you work with me, you’re working with a counselor who is up-to-date and committed to helping you reach your goals.

Is Reiki right for you?

Reiki is a spiritual healing art. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word (Rei) which means “Universal Life” and (Ki) which means “Energy”. Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice. It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion. The Reiki you receive through my hands helps to improve the flow of energy through your chakras (your body’s principal energy centers) as well as other areas in need of healing. A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.
