I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
I attended the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNC-Charlotte) where I obtained my dual degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice. During my college and graduate years I spent a lot of time doing research and presenting the findings at multiple conferences. I understand the importance of staying up to date in research. It is also my duty as a counselor to ensure I am constantly learning new ways and approaches to better assist my clients in overcoming the challenges they are facing.
I graduated from UNC-Charlotte and moved to Washington, D.C. where I attended Marymount University and obtained my Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I have worked in numerous mental health settings; residential, partial hospitalization, intensive out-patient, and group practice. As a result, I have a firm understanding of when higher level of care is warranted and how to support clients during that transition.
Growing up I played many sports. From basketball, swimming, soccer, tennis, and even karate. Eventually, I settled on one sport, gymnastics. I expanded upon my love of gymnastics and became a coach. As someone who has been in both shoes, I have a unique understanding of the risks and benefits that come with playing sports. Feel free to reach out if you’d like to learn more about me and how I can support you.
