I attended the University of Georgia for undergraduate and graduate school, finishing my masters in professional counseling in 2011. I worked with children, adolescents, and families at a C&A community mental health clinic for a couple years before transitioning to higher education. I then spent five years in college counseling centers, and I continue to love working with college students and young adults as they make major career and relationship choices.
I am also passionate about working with families to build a home environment of safety, trust, and confidence. I served as a foster parent in Bulloch County for several years and spent some time as a consultant with Babies Can't Wait, an early intervention program for ages 0-3, helping parents support toddlers with attachment issues and trauma behaviors using strategies from Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI).
I transitioned to private practice in October 2017 and have been lucky to work with the wonderful staff of Fresh Start Counseling Services on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. I primarily work with adolescents and adults, and I am a certified PREPARE-ENRICH facilitator for couples. On days that I'm not in the office, I am usually chasing after my kids.
