I have always wholeheartedly believed in the adage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So, when I obtained a Masters in Counseling and a PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision it was because of counseling's wellness origins and emphasis on helping normal people through normal life issues. Today my passion is to help others through their unique process of growing in strength. As a licensed professional counselor, writer, and speaker, I aim to help people holistically address each aspect of their being in order to achieve optimal living. The philosophy that guides all my work is this: I pray that you would prosper and be in good health even as your soul prospers and gets along well (3 John 2). Thank you for allowing me to join your journey toward joy and wellness.
I am a licensed professional counselor in the Commonwealth of Virginia in the Coastal Virginia region. I specialize in holistic counseling that incorporates mindfulness, movement, and spirituality. I find the most joy in working with wellness-oriented women and young adults who are motivated to adopt healthier habits for a satisfying life. I am currently on sabbatical from outpatient practice and am not accepting private clients at this time.
I have years of experience speaking to various colleges and universities, community groups, and churches. I am available to present on various topics related to emotional and physical well-being. These topics include, but are not limited to mindfulness-based stress reduction, self-care practices to prevent burnout, and soul wellness.
