“I am passionate about meeting my clients where they are at in life. I am in awe of the bravery, resiliency, and strength of my clients and I will do everything I can to support you as you explore your needs, focus on growing and healing, adjust to life transitions, and work towards your goals.”
I was born and raised in Northwest Arkansas. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Missouri Southern State University and my Master of Social Work degree at St. Louis University. I have traveled throughout North America and I love to explore new places. When I am not working, I am most likely hiking, kayaking, reading a good book, playing with my dog, or spending time with my family/friends.
