Life is a journey. Sometimes we must take the road less traveled to get to our destination. The road less traveled for many has been acknowledging they need help and taking the steps to seek help. I am here to meet each client wherever they are on that road to life’s journey. I believe each of us has the innate ability to reach our full potential.
I view counseling as a collaborative relationship in which the client and I move toward trusting one another, work as a team to explore the current problematic issues and develop goals for an improved life toward realizing those goals. / may focus on patterns of thoughts, behaviors, moods, and relationships that are important to you – the client.
My work emphasizes working with mental health issues that relate to those individuals including but not limited to personality disorders, grief, anxiety, depression, and adjustment disorders. My approach to counseling is solution focused, person-centered and CBT theoretical approaches based on the clients’ needs and the nature of the presenting problem.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Grambling State University in Grambling, Louisiana. I then moved to Southern California, where I earned a Master of Business Administration from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, CA. My journey brought me back to the south. I earned a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, AR.
