I have been a marriage and family therapist (MFT) for over 10 years. As you can see from my education experiences, I have been trained in many parts of the country. Along with this, I have had a wide range of clinical experiences, working as a therapist in a juvenile justice center, a women's shelter, and various community agencies. Working with people from all walks of life is something that I have enjoyed. When I work with clients, I believe that we are embarking on a journey together, working toward a common goal, experiencing change and growth along the way.

As an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky in marriage and family therapy, I have the opportunity to teach therapist interns learning to become marriage and family therapists. The training program at UK is a well-respected program in MFT. As part of the training, I supervise their sessions and provide feedback. This helps me to stay current with therapeutic techniques and processes.

As an assistant professor, I am also involved in research. My research interests focuses on couple interactions and how therapy works. I use the knowledge I gain from research to inform my therapeutic practice.
