I have experience working with trauma, anxiety, depression, and symptoms related to severe mental illness. I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Auburn University.
I have extensive training in trauma-related symptoms and suicidal ideation. I use cognitive behavioral and existential approaches when working with clients to assist in clients’ journey through therapy. During my internship at East Alabama Medical Center, I worked with an array of doctors and nurses to assist in patient’s recovery in the hospital. I also have experience with children with conduct disorders, anxiety, depression, and trauma related symptoms. I worked with families and children to provide integrative care. My experience at the hospital was with self-harming behavior, suicidal ideation, psychosis, depression, anxiety, and substance use.
