New Beginnings Counselor

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC) and will receive my certification in Play Therapy this year. While obtaining my Masters Degree in Community Agency Counseling from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, I interned for Alabama Baptist Association’s counseling organization (Pathways Professional Counseling) where I was trained in individual, family, couple’s, and play therapy. At a private counseling agency, I worked predominately with children and families utilizing family, play, person-centered, integrative, and cognitive behavioral therapy approaches. Before coming to Spain Park, I worked as a school counselor at a Birmingham City School where I offered individual, small group, and classroom guidance to K-4 students. I currently provide counseling services for New Beginning's students and Credit Recovery students as needed and serve as a Key Club sponsor. My faith is important to me, and I enjoy talking, uninterrupted sleep, free coffee from the school's library, and SPAIN PARK! I am excited to assist in any way I can for your student!
