I am originally from Athens. I graduated from the University of North Georgia with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Throughout my schooling, I volunteered in hospital settings and nonprofit organizations. I went on to receive a Master of Education at the University of Georgia in Mental Health Counseling. During my graduate program, I worked with students in recovery from substances and eating disorders, providing individual and group therapy. After graduating, I worked as a behavioral health clinician in a rural community mental health facility where I saw individuals dealing with substance misuse and severe mental disorders.
You have taken a huge step towards your healing process by even considering counseling! What a wonderful step to make! I am available for individual sessions which are typically 50 minutes long. I have availability Monday through Friday. I am looking forward to working with you! Peace and Love!
