I received my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling through Wake Forest University.  I completed my Bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in sociology from UNCFSU/Fayetteville State University. I have experience with inpatient group counseling, supportive counseling through Wake Forest Baptist’s Burn and Trauma units, and in outpatient therapy.  I use a mindfulness, cognitive behavioral, construct, and person centered supportive approach in order to best collaborate with my clients to meet their needs.
