About me...

I have always loved stories. Since joining the counseling field have come to believe that we were made for a good story. Life rarely gives us a harmonious narrative, and I hope to partner with clients and hold a space for their story as they walk through challenging seasons, difficult relationships, or times of grief.

 

I have had the unique privilege of being trained in more than one clinical setting so far, having spent Summer 2021 working and learning in Emory University Hospital’s intensive outpatient program. As I transition into my Internship at CRC, I am looking forward to creating a welcoming place for individual clients to navigate their stories. I am currently completing advanced training in trauma treatment at Richmont. Here I have developed a passion for educating clients about the biological and developmental effects of trauma, while also creating an environment where they feel safe to process their story and learn how to move forward.

 

In my free time I love to browse my local library, eat Reese’s Cups, and find new restaurants with my friends and family!
