I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and received my undergraduate degree from Mary Washington College (now The University of Mary Washington). After a career in human resources and operations, I found myself drawn towards those conversations that matter most: Who am I? Where do I come from? Who is the person I want to be? All of those questions are central to the therapeutic process. 
I received my masters degree in Psychology from Phillips Graduate Institute in 2014, where I graduated with a concentration in Substance Abuse and Co-Occurring Disorders. I have worked in several different school settings, both seeing individual clients and teaching human development and relationships. I am proud to be an alumnus of the Southern California Counseling Center, where I continue to serve the community by supervising associate therapists on a volunteer basis.
When I am not working as a therapist, I am slowly learning how to cook.
