I graduated with my M.Ed. in Counseling from the University of Montevallo in 2014 and gained experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings prior to joining Pesek Counseling Services in 2017. I am passionate about supporting a sense of hope and confidence in my clients, who range from older children to adults. My main treatment areas include depression, anxiety disorders, mood instability, behavioral problems, difficult transitions, self-validation needs, trauma-related concerns, and stress management. I utilize a collaborative and integrative approach to counseling, including use of cognitive-behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy, to meet clients where they are and journey with them in learning new skills, building overall mental health, and strengthening resilience and hope. Outside of work, my favorite activities include reading, spending time with family and friends, and loving on my two sweet beagles.
