How long have you been working as a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor?
I received my licensure in January 2023. Prior to my current position, I spent 23 years working as an elementary school counselor with both elementary and middle school age students. I retired from Guilford County Schools in December 2022.
Why did you choose this work?
Working as a mental health therapist gives me the opportunity to work intensively with my clients and their families. I love the age range that I serve (ages 4-18) and the array of challenges and situations each day brings. The families and youth I serve are highly motivated to work toward their goals and I am honored to help facilitate this in my role as a therapist.
What population of clients do you serve? Why that group?
I have loved working with young children and teens since I was in middle and high school myself. Perhaps because I consider myself a child at heart, I easily connect with the younger population I work with. You are never too old to play and learn new things!
What is something that you enjoy doing for fun?
I love to exercise and move my body whether through yoga, strength training, walking, biking or hiking. I love to travel to new places and visit state and national parks. I am a “nature girl” and I love time outdoors, especially enjoying the beautiful hiking and biking trails in Greensboro. I love to spend time with my husband, Ray; our adult kids, Nicholas and Austin; and my goldendoodle, Scout. Every day is a gift and I try to celebrate the small events and never take them for granted.
Share a fun fact about yourself!
Fun fact, I went skydiving with my best friend from childhood to celebrate my 50th birthday.
