The Action Alliance for Suicide Prevention (Action Alliance) is the nation’s public-private partnership for suicide prevention. The Action Alliance works with more than 250 national partners to advance the National Strategy for Suicide Prevention

Sometimes life knocks you down and it’s hard to get back up on your own. You have already made the first step by seeking counseling.

I look forward to helping you find your way in a warm and welcoming environment and utilizing a variety of clinically supported treatment modalities.

My experience includes individual and group community based counseling, crisis counseling, anger management, mindfulness, resilience and de-escalation. My specialties include trauma, anxiety, depression, LGBTQ+ issues and grief and more.

As a child, adolescent and adult counselor, I am passionate about helping others through life's challenges. My goal is to provide a safe space to support growth, transparency, and change. I work with individuals, families and couples to facilitate goals, provide coping skills, and improve overall understanding of how to utilize these in everyday life, school, and home. I utilize several techniques including: Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), TF-CBT, Mindfulness, Christian Counseling, and Person-Centered. I am also a Certified SYMBIS Facilitator for Marriage Counseling.

I am currently a Pastoral counselor and an intern completing my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling under the supervision of faculty of Liberty University and Sandra Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling. I look forward to working with you and supporting you on this journey as we navigate life's everyday challenges together!

The journey of mental health is a long, winding road. Sometimes it is hard to find direction, and taking the step to seek counseling is one of the bravest things someone can do!  Although the road may have construction, detours, or stop signs, my goal is to support you through the obstacles you face in life's greatest challenges.

By using a person-centered approach, my goal is to help you work through whatever you're going through, learn more about yourself, and develop a healthy lifestyle so you can be the best person you can be.  Working with ages 5 to 35, I use techniques such as Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Motivational Interviewing, Christian-based Therapy, Play Therapy, Music Therapy, Art Therapy, and Emotion-Focused Therapy.

I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Coastal Carolina University and am expected to graduate from Capella University with my Master's in 2023. I am currently a Clinical Mental Health Intern under the supervision of Sandy Quast, LPCS of Coastal Haven Counseling.
