I am a first year graduate student in the Clinical Mental Health Masters program at Lipscomb University. Although I have always been drawn to the helping professions, and specifically counseling, I recently switched careers to pursue my dream of becoming a counselor. I am seeking my Alcohol and Drug Abuse licensure (LADAC) as well. I believe all people are worthy of wellness and I am excited to walk the path to wellness alongside my clients in the future. In the future I hope to train in trauma-focused therapies to help empower clients to heal from trauma and live their best possible lives.
