Life can be hard sometimes. I feel that anytime we can be helped through difficult situations that arise in our lives, we should accept it. In order to make the positive life changes that we sometimes feel are necessary we must be able to recognize and understand our own negative thoughts and what we can do to change them.
I have been a counselor for seven years. I have worked in many settings including Intensive Inpatient treatment, intensive Outpatient treatment, and Assisted Living Facilities. However, I feel that my own personal calling is working with “at-risk” youth, primarily male, ranging from ages 4-18. My education, training, and life experiences allow me to understand and develop relationships with this often-overlooked population.
I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Biology with a Minor in Criminal Justice from Troy University. I also earned my Master’s degree in Psychology and Counseling from Troy University. Having been raised and educated in this area, it is my goal to make the therapeutic process as comfortable and informal as possible.
