Education: 
  • M.S. (Counselor Education), East Carolina University
  • B.S. (Finance), North Carolina A&T State University
Theoretical Orientation: 

My primary approach to counseling is an integration of person-centered, existentialist, and rational emotive behavior therapies. The interlaying of these three therapies cultivates a therapeutic environment that accentuates the client’s authority and reveals their inherent strengths. It also leaves room for me as the counselor to appropriately support the client’s growth and awareness through psychoeducation. I also utilize storytelling to emphasize the role that narratives and stories have on our well-being, which allows for those who have been minoritized to be seen and heard in an empowering manner. My aim is to form a comprehensive framework where the client gains deep awareness, as well as the tools to continue the growing, healing, and learning process long after termination
