Hi! My name is
BS, Major: Psychology, Minor: Sociology
I've been trained in EMDR since 2013. I am also a certified Daring Way and Rising Strong group facilitator. I also see counselors to work through trauma and compassion fatigue related to their work.
Before starting private practice, I spent the last 7 yrs in management at drug and alcohol treatment centers in georgia and texas. I created programming for nearby treatment centers, including intensive family workshops and curriculums.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor- Supervisor & have been in the field 12 yrs. I can provide supervision for licensure for LPC-I's. I'm also experienced in conferences, speaking & training.
My style comes from my saying, "The story always wins". The story you believe about yourself- about what you deserve - is what will manifest. That narrative will run your life until you dismantle it, and rewrite it.
My approach is to help you figure out where you learned these things, and discard the things that cause you pain or are no longer productive.
In my experience, when people are asked the right questions and given the space to be heard, they can find their own answers. Discovering your own truth holds so much more power.
I hold a MAC & DOT SAP certification. I am skilled at helping people work through addiction and related issues without shaming them. I have also appeared on A&E Intervention.
