"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all" - Dale Carnegie
I graduated from East Carolina University in 2010 with a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling and a Master of Science in Substance Abuse/Clinical Counseling. My undergraduate internship took place at a behavioral health unit at a trauma hospital where I worked with adults and geriatric patients with severe mental health issues. My graduate internship took place at a state run 14 day residential treatment center working with patients with substance use issues and co-occurring disorders. I have worked in several other settings including acute care units (detoxification and stabilization), intensive outpatient, medication assisted treatment, & community outpatient. I have been trained in trauma focused counseling including Seeking Safety & Prolonged Exposure Therapy. I attended part 1 of an intensive training on Dialectical Behavior Therapy and was part of a team that practiced full model DBT. I enjoy incorporating mindfulness exercises in therapy sessions and have experience facilitating relaxation/meditation groups. I have experience working with perinatal populations including pregnant women and women with children under the age of 2. I feel confident working with clients who have goals regarding the following: substance use issues, anxiety, depression, PTSD, borderline personality disorder, postpartum issues, relationship difficulties, bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders, communication issues, and spirituality. I work primarily with adults and teens.
In my free time I enjoy camping, reading, hiking, working out, cooking, gardening, and meditating. I also enjoy getting massages and Reiki.
