Georgetown Office Clinician
I always knew that I wanted to work with people. I’m a people person that loves to talk and listen. I specifically love working with adolescents, so naturally I became a teacher. I received my B.A. in Education from the University of Kentucky. My Bachelor’s degree led me to teach middle and high school grades for 14 years.
While working in the school system, my students and colleagues gave me confirmation in the ability to listen and help. I found myself wanting to do so much more not only in the classroom, but outside of the classroom. This guided me to pursue my Masters in School Counseling from Eastern Kentucky University.
I knew that I had found my passion when I started counseling. I have now been a teacher, school counselor, and am currently a Mental Health Specialist with Fayette County Public Schools. This position led me to counsel anyone (of any age) and obtain my LPCA. Now, I am humbled and honored to be a part of the Counseling Associates team.
I yearn to build rapport with my clients, while learning who they are as individuals and how life has molded who they are. I offer a calm, relaxed atmosphere where individuals feel a sense of comfort and ease. I want to provide individuals with techniques and coping skills to work through life’s difficulties. I understand that everyone’s story is different. Hopefully my therapeutic style and practices will cater to you. I look forward to meeting and learning about you so that I can help you begin your therapeutic journey!
