New Beginnings Counselor

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Nationally Certified Counselor (NCC). 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!
