I obtained a Master's of Science in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University in May of 2014. I am trained to work with individual, families, and groups. I also have extensive knowledge and sensitivity in working with adolescents and adults, and those suffering from moderate to severe mental health symptoms. I am Licensed in the State of North Carolina (#11042) and have received additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy. and Motivational Interviewing techniques. My clientele includes children, adolescents. and adults, in individual, family, and group therapy to address a variety of needs, including, but not limited to, situational stressors, family relations, relationships, mental health issues, and life span issues.
Counseling involves the sharing of problems, concerns, and stories with a professional who is skilled at helping the client or clients come to a resolution or solution about the particular situation. Counseling is a relatively short-term, interpersonal; theory based professional activity guided by ethical and legal standards that focuses on helping persons resolve developmental issues, situational problems, and more complex diagnosis.
The general goals for the client are that he/she can identify the issues, develop a plan of action, and then implement that plan. This is a very personal process. I believe that it is educational and developmental by nature.
My approach to counseling is rooted in many different theoretical orientations. I believe that everyone has the freedom to choose what directions to their life takes and the responsibility to take control of that freedom. Thus, counselors do not have the "answers" to the client's "problem" but is a facilitator of the process that helps the client take responsibility and action that will assist them with resolving their problems and ultimately improve their quality of life.

undergraduate degree from NC A&T State University in psychology in 1998 and my master’s degree in
professional counseling from Liberty University in 2014. I made the decision to pursue counseling in
2011 when I recognized that I had done everything I could at my current level, and I wanted to do more
to help hurting individuals. As a counselor, I feel that it is important to be able to practice active listening
and the ability to reflect on those things that was shared to assist individuals who are trying to cope with
My experience has range from working with children, adolescent, and adults where I have gotten the
