Education and Experience:
I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR), culminating in the completion of my Master of Social Work (MSW) in 2006. Over the years, my professional journey has encompassed a rich tapestry of experiences. I have had the privilege of working extensively with adult and geriatric populations, facilitating individual and group therapy, contributing to the field in a state hospital, practicing in a private setting, working for the U.S. military abroad, working in inpatient settings, working with immigrants, and specializing in family and couple therapy. These diverse experiences have equipped me with a broad skill set to address the unique needs of individuals and families across various contexts.
