I hold a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Baylor University, a Master's degree in Social Work from UNC Chapel Hill, a license in Clinical Social Work, and over five years working as a social worker in a variety of settings. Before beginning my practice, I worked in foster care agencies, human trafficking safe homes, refugee mental health clinics, and mental health advocacy centers. I additionally hold a specialized certification in TF-CBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
In addition to my work in direct trauma care, I strive to bring mental health tips and relief worldwide through a modern mental health approach. With a following of over 300,000 on social media, I aim to eliminate the stigma around mental health and promote healing for all with accessible mental health tips and tricks to promote self-growth and self-care.
Through this variety of work and many years of training, I have developed a specialty of working with children, adolescents, and young adults in helping heal past trauma, depression, anxiety, school/work related stress, and more.
