My Approach

Since I was in high school, I dreamed of owning a private practice. Less than a year ago, my dream came true. I have worked in a state agency for 10 years learning and growing in my ability to treat a large variety of mental disorders. Now I own Spell Counseling Services and am humbled and thankful for every client that comes in. Over the years, I have worked hard at growing as a therapist to earn my LPC and have continued to push myself to learn new therapies to provide my clients with options to effectively work with them through whatever brings them in. 

I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) through Behavioral Tech. I have been practicing DBT for 5 years. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and have seen how effective it is when someone has gone through a traumatic situation. I incorporate CBT, TF-CBT, MI, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy when the client's needs and preferences call for it. 

Therapy can be a difficult process to go through all the while hoping to have a better result in the end. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at 843-624-8618.
