Originally from Georgia, I found the move to Minnesota to be somewhat of a challenging adventure, but in the process have become thankful to call Minnesota home. I am happily married and value creating new memories and experiencing life together with my spouse. I enjoy coming home to a very active and adventurous lab that keeps us both on our toes, as we explore the many beautiful lakes and trails of Minnesota. Growing up, I witnessed first-hand the kind of pain and hardships that can come with life, but I have also seen the beautiful insight and healing that can come from counseling. Thus, I have dedicated my life to learning and growing in ways to make a difference for others.


I’ve been credited with being a good listener and enjoy connecting with the stories of those around me. I get excited and passionate about helping others achieve a more fulfilled life. Let’s be honest, sometimes life is just hard. We all need a space to know I am safe and not alone. The famous country singer John Michael Montgomery said “Life’s a dance you learn as you go.” I have learned to adapt and grow through my own journey and difficulties life has presented, and have learned that I could not do this alone. In the journey of counseling I strive to create a loving and warm environment. A safe space to collaboratively “dance”  in identifying and growing in insight and helping you to move forward through hard moments . I use a variety of therapy models, but enjoy more of a solution-focused approach identifying new and creative opportunities as you learn to find healing and hope. I look forward to connecting with you in your journey, hearing your story, and finding tangible and workable solutions.
