About Your Practice
Starting in 1997, I spent the next 5 summers either on a mission's trip or working in the 9th ward of New Orleans. It's here that God tugged at my heart to begin my own journey of healing. After this experience, I knew I wanted to work with young people who were hurting. I changed my major in college and decided to pursue a masters in counseling. My heart was forever changed after this experience.
Who has influenced your work?
I had a few professors in college and a mentor that really believed in me and spoke many words of life over me.
How does your faith play itself out in your work?
My faith is everything in my work. I truly believe in order to live to your fullest potential you must be in healthy relationship with yourself, others and Christ. Knowing who you are in Christ if foundational to fully living. Understanding who I am in Christ was a game changer for me both personally and professionally. This is a relationship that is always evolving.
Jack Johnson, Mumford and Sons, and Dave....I'm a little crunchy. LOL. I love me some Bethel and Elevation Worship too!
Which TV show would you never miss?
I don't really watch TV....I know, I know. I honestly don't think I have ever sat through an entire episode. If I did, it was probably "This is Us."
What's your favorite book or author?
I love Brene Brown. "Battlefield of the Mind" was monumental in helping me overcome a lot of lies that I was believing for so long. "The Dream Giver" was a good one too.
What is your favorite sport/physical activity?
FOOTBALL!!! I'm a girl in the south!!! GO SEC!
What's your favorite place to visit?
Any place with water. The beach, lake, a river...or even a creek...I'm not picky.
Just for Fun
Mothers Day Out at my church.
What is your most treasured possession?
My beautiful family. I have an incredible husband and 2 toddlers. Jack and Ivey are 17 months apart... so I basically never sit unless I'm driving.
If you have friends coming over, what would you cook?
My husband would probably grill something. I'd toss together a bagged salad and ask the guest to bring dessert. LOL. I'm learning to delegate.
What pastimes or hobbies do you enjoy?
I love hiking, bonfires and being outside. I enjoy cooking when I have the time.
Other than your current home, if you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Any place with really good restaurants, beaches and mountains...but not too far from family.
