Getting to know me......
All My 411.
I feel we all go through seasons in life, and some can be stormier than others. I also feel we can ALL benefit from therapy at various times throughout our journey.
I have worked in the mental health field since 2008. I began my journey serving others as a case manager for children and adults. I then transitioned into a grant position that allowed me to work with the transient population to help expedite social security claims for those in need. Once I obtained my Master's in Counseling in 2014, I began working for a non-profit agency providing therapy services to children, teens, adults, and families. I recently accepted a position at a local college providing counseling services to students.
In my 12+ years in the field of behavioral and mental health, there is no greater reward than seeing people overcome obstacles and to be there to celebrate with them. I would love the opportunity to celebrate with YOU right now!
I am passionate about this work and I am glad I can serve Coffee Co. and it's neighboring areas. I am hopeful we can collaborate together in order for you to become who you want to be....who you truly are.
I currently reside in Manchester with my fur babies: Maci, Riley, and Chloe. I adore classic rock music, riding the Harley, and watching Supernatural reruns on Netflix.
