I graduated from Western Kentucky University in 2015 with degrees in Creatives Writing and Religions and Cultures of Asia. After graduating, I spent several years traveling, moving from states across America. I lived in several cities, from coast of Florida to the Bay in California and spent several months in Southeast Asia, visiting Thailand, Malaysia and Nepal.
Moving back to my hometown of Louisville, I hoped to plant roots in one city and begin my career as a therapist. Deeply impacted by the civil unrest in my city during 2020, I began pursuing a career in social services. I spent almost a year as a Medical Coordinator and Youth Counselor at Boys and Girls Haven, a residential facility for at risk youth where my passion for providing trauma-informed care to disenfranchised people deepened even further.
It is my mission to bring compassion and care to all people who suffer from oppression and struggle with their mental health. It is my personal philosophy that though we may be unable to choose the hand we are dealt in this life. peace of mind and a joy-filled life are attainable for everyone.
In the first year studying Couples and Family Therapy, I worked as Mental Health Practitioner intern at Iroquois High School, doing therapy with the students there. Over the summer, I am working as a Mental Health Support for staff at YMCA Camp Piomingo. Some of my passions are nature, art and traveling. I am still exploring what therapeutic style fit me best! I find myself drawn towards CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy and mindfulness therapy practices.
I look forward to collaborating with my clients to find the best ways to create meaningful change in their lives, communicate more mindfully with others and navigate through the inevitably difficulties life will bring us.
