PRACTICUM STUDENT, LIBERTY UNIVERSITY
I have been a member of Fairfield Baptist Church since October 2015, and I've recently joined Apollos Center with a deep desire to support our ministry of healing and growth in a new role as a graduate practicum student. I graduated with a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Houston and am in the last semester of completing the M.A. Professional Counseling Program at Liberty University.
I have a passion for connecting with people and empathically walking alongside them in their healing journey. I have training and experience in working with adults, teens, and kids in developing healthy boundaries and attachment, adoptive/foster care families, grief & loss, and personal experience in grief from broken relationships, pregnancy loss, and parental loss. With an integrated Christian approach to professional counseling, I see value in combining evidence-based interventions with the truth found in Scripture to be a vessel on the path of healing for my clients.
I offer an eclectic and integrated approach through attachment-focused and person-centered theory, while utilizing interventions and strategies from cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-informed, and trust-based relational interventions. I help with issues like anxiety, depression, trauma, boundaries, and other experiences that might make you feel stuck.
You are not alone in the challenges that present themselves as you walk through life. My own life experiences and personal healing journey have equipped me so that I am able to walk with you on your own path to healing. I would love to connect with you and answer any questions you have about the counseling journey!
