A veteran of the U.S. Air Force, I became interested in working in behavioral and mental health after working with young adults in a university counseling center. Emotional and behavioral disorders intrigue me, and I continued my career working with adolescents and young adults. As a soon-to-be licensed professional (late 2021), I can assure you I am well equipped to travel the mental health journey with you. In the past, my mentors were psychiatrists, psychologists, and seasoned counselors; their experiences enhanced my passion for the field. I will work with you using a collaborative, cooperative, problem-solving process, being actively involved in bringing about emotional or behavioral change.
