my journey to help
My journey to become a counselor was far from a linear path. In my late teens, I gave college the ‘college try’ a few times, and I learned that I was not sure what I wanted from life. I worked at a Renaissance Festival for a few years, operated heavy equipment, was a landscape foreman, and even dabbled in low-level law enforcement. These work experiences taught me three things: I really like people and find people to be fascinating; I enjoy helping people; and I like to figure things out. When I began to follow these three heartbeats, I tore through academia and earned a Master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling. I worked for over sixteen years at an inpatient behavioral health unit, which exposed me to multiple diagnoses and symptoms, complex problems, and top-notch mentorship and supervision. I opened my private practice in the early Spring of 2018 – my practice has grown steadily and I haven’t looked back since!
