More About Me

About Me

Hi! I am a licensed professional counselor from Macon, GA.  I received my Master's in Counseling Pyschology from the Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and have been licensed in the state of GA since 2012. I currently serve as a contracted MI trainer for various educational institutions, healthcare facilities and training organizations.

In the past, I served as Project Coordinator for SECSAT-APRN (Southeastern Consortium for Substance Abuse Training - Advanced Practice Registered Nurses).  My position allowed me to colloborate with faculty, preceptors and students at 8 different universities, delivering both MI and SBIRT content.

I was trained in MI from some of the leaders in the field beginning in 2009 as a Heatlh Educator, delivering brief interventions at a large, urban hospital to patients screening positive for unhealthy alcohol or drug use.  I currently use MI with clients in a private practice setting and am continually encouraged by its effectiveness and how it allows me to form cohesion with my clients. 

I have had the great privilege to provide training in Honduras and look forward to returning one day.  I have also served as a trainer for groups through the Southeastern ATTC.  In addition to MI training, I provide SBIRT training to healthcare organizations and academic institutions.

Trainer Statement

"We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know." - Carl Rogers

As MI trainers and practitioners, we have the privilege of offering that 'most potent force for change.' It is an honor to do this work and I look forward to all future opportunities afforded me.
