I am currently in the Clinical Mental Counseling program at Liberty University and anticipate graduation
in May 2024. In addition, life experiences have led me to counseling. I am a wounded combat veteran’s
wife. A home school mom and tutor, an immigrant from China, a piano teacher, and a trauma survivor
and a Christian.
I always have had a heart for helping others and my clients are varied. I work with children as young as
4ys old through the lifespan. I enjoy working with couples, individuals, and groups.
I am a certified SYMBIS Assessment Facilitator for premarital and marriage counseling.
I have additional training in
EMDR for trauma
Grief Counseling and treatment
Suicide Prevention
Military and Veteran training for
Eating disorders
Sexual trauma
Substance disorder
Self Care
Grief
Crisis Response
Suicidal ideation
Disordered Drinking
Intimate Partner Violence: Trauma-Informed Interventions for Survivors
Youth Mental Health First Aid USA
Having taught many years of piano teaching and homeschooling, I humbly learned that it was not
enough to just have the heart. It is paramount to tailor my way of helping to meet the specific needs of
others. I believe it is the same in the mental health counseling field. Your struggle or hurt is unique,
personal, and significant, and it is my privilege to help you feel heard, seen, understood, cared for and to
tailor methods or strategies to help you overcome your challenges. Together, we’ll walk through this
journey toward growth, healing, and a better life.
