I grew up in Richmond, Virginia and received my undergraduate degree from Mary Washington College (now The University of Mary Washington). After several years doing human resources and operations in a corporate setting, I decided that I wanted to spend my career talking about things that matter most to people- not spreadsheets and data, but relationships and self-care. 
I received my masters degree in Psychology from Phillips Graduate Institute in 2014, where I graduated with a concentration in Substance Abuse and Co-Occurring Disorders. I have worked in several different school settings, both seeing individual clients and teaching human development and relationships. I am proud to be an alumnus of Southern California Counseling Center.
When I am not working as a therapist, I am slowly learning how to cook.
