My Journey and Experience

My first experience in this field was with a call hotline for crisis and suicide.  I quickly discovered that this field was going to be a part of my life forever.  I have a specialty in Marriage and Family Counseling and this part of counseling is something that I am very excited about. Another unique aspect of my counselings is that I have certificates from Florida to provide  Adoptions Related Counseling.  Another certificate program that I completed was in trauma related counseling and do have experience with working with those who have experienced trauma in their lives.  This includes any kind of emotions or situations related to adoption.  My experience  also has given me a wonderful foundation of knowledge to work closely with depression, anxiety and mood disorders. and addictions. I am familiar with 12 step programs for addictions and can use those to help support the counseling process.   As part of my practice if you request these services I also provide christian based counseling for I accepted Jesus in my middle school years.  I believe prayer is something that God has provided to help others receive encouragement and support during times that are difficult.  I believe that I am here not too judge but to give support and direction and new tools to help others along their path that they are walking.
