I graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Child Studies from Louisiana Tech University.

I am a two-time graduate of Troy University. I first obtained my Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a minor in Social Work. After, I received a Master of Science degree in Counseling and Psychology. From acute psychiatric care to private practice, I have worked in a variety of mental health roles. Each of these experiences has shaped me to be the clinician I am today. One of the most important pieces of education I received from each of these roles was expertise in Trauma-Informed Care.
