More About Me
I work as an Associate Clinical Mental Health Counselor (ACMHC) at Unified Family Therapy in our Draper location as well as virtually. I enjoy working with and helping people. I’ve always been drawn to helping people find hope in their lives. I worked in a school environment for many years and saw such a great need among the students to feel accepted and cared about. I always want to be that person for them. That desire turned into a passion and that turned into a career in counseling. The techniques and training I have received have equipped me to bring solutions and joy into every session. I have always felt everyone needs hope.
Before coming to Unified Family Therapy, I had the opportunity to work in many different settings that have helped me become a well-rounded therapist for adults of all ages and stages as well as teenagers. I worked in a counseling department for a male correctional facility focusing on addiction issues. In North Carolina, I helped organized a care center that provided counseling for anyone free of charge. I have also spent time volunteering in homeless shelters providing comfort and a listening ear. Having moved from North Carolina to New York, I became part of a social agency that provided counseling to those who have experienced some form of abuse. During that time I also worked in school systems that gave me insight into a modern culture with all the difficulties that adolescents face today. I worked with various churches helping to provide marriage counseling classes and interventions.
I received my bachelor’s degree from Liberty University in psychology, minoring in Christian counseling. I then received my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Liberty University in Virginia. I have completed basic EMDR training through EMDRIA, a national program. I am certified as a pre-marital counselor from Symbis. I have been trained in PTSD issues as well as received many various training sessions. My education, experience, skills, and training are things I would like to bring together so that I can help you walk your journey.
