I am a student pursuing a Master's degree in Counseling in order to become a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and serve the Washington, DC area, where I currently reside.
As a second career, I chose this field because I see people who are hurting emotionally and experiencing stress, sadness, and the inability to enjoy life. I desire to walk alongside those who experience the negative emotions that result from hurtful and traumatic life events, helping them be seen, heard, and validated throughout the healing process. My goal is to help people acknowledge and be honest about the unpleasant parts of their unique narratives, assisting them to heal, grow, and enjoy life again.
I believe that being used as an agent of change in someone's life is humbling, and that it's a privilege to be entrusted with someone's story and emotions, and to journey toward healing together.
