I began working in the mental health field in 1993. I have worked in Baptist residential treatment facilities for teenage boys and girls, a Catholic residential treatment facility for teenage girls, and a Methodist foster care program. I obtained my Masters in Social Work at the University of Louisville in 1999 and opened my private practice in 2008. Throughout my career, I have always prayed for my clients prior to seeing them. I utilize my faith in believing the best of everyone and that God has a plan for all of us which includes not wanting us to experience distress and trauma in our lives. I was raised Southern Baptist and was baptized when I was 7. However, I didn't really live the Christian life throughout my teenage and early 20's but became Spirit filled when I was 25 which was 25 years ago. I presently attend a non denominational church. I will utilize Bible verses if needed for issues you may be having. I will encourage you to listen to Christian music through avenues such as K-Love radio station to help your mental health needs throughout the day. I will inquire if you are attending church to see if you have the support of your pastor in your life or church members who can also be a support system. I love to hear people's stories of their faith, whether they have been a long time Christian or were recently discharged from prison and had a radical encounter with Jesus!
