I was called to work with children and support families at a young age. From child care to volunteer opportunities with the Special Olympics, and then an undergraduate internship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, I have served children and families since I was very young, in many capacities whenever I was able to be of value.
I believe that in loving relationships and with intentional decisions, all people can live a peaceful and rewarding life. I also believe that we are all designed with goodness in mind and we all have the power to survive hardships. I have worked with severely abused children, violent offenders, traumatized service members, divorced families, and clients with multiple mental health diagnoses.People are resilient and I am inspired by every client with whom I have the privilege to work. I know that cognitive behavioral therapy works and I am eager to restore hope in my clients.
In 1998 I earned my Bachelor’s degree from Ohio University in psychology with an emphasis on the biological sciences. I went on to earn my Master’s degree in Counseling from Xavier University and I am now a doctoral candidate with aspirations to earn my PhD in Psychology in the Fall of 2020. I am a non-traditional student, but I love to learn and I am pursuing a goal that I set at the age of 14. My husband is my biggest fan and works in law enforcement. He is retired from the United States Marine Corps. and we were blessed by his opportunity to serve our country for over 20 years. We have three children; two young sons and an older daughter who attends the University of North Carolina in Charlotte as a business and marketing major. Our boys are talented athletes and soccer fanatics. We have a miniature Australian Shepherd named Willow Grayce and we all share a love of eating, traveling to the mountains, listening to music and sitting around a campfire.
I would be honored to serve your family and help you restore peace and purpose.
