I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Mississippi, with 7 years of experience in a variety of practice settings. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Business from Millsaps College, and a Masters Degree in Social Work from The University of Alabama. I am currently the Program Director for a respite day program here in Oxford serving individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. I have also recently worked in a residential trauma treatment program, providing therapy to individuals struggling with PTSD. Prior to that position, I worked in a community mental health setting, providing therapeutic interventions for individuals struggling with substance abuse, grief, depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, and many other challenges.

It is my belief that no matter who we are or where we come from, no one is immune to difficult circumstances or life stressors. I have worked with people from various walks of life who are seeking to make meaningful and positive changes in their lives, but need the support of an objective and trustworthy person to help them work through challenging situations. I truly see it as a privilege to work with people as they navigate through the struggles of their lives, and to empower and equip them with the tools to make meaningful changes and gain new perspectives. I’m grateful for the opportunity to do this work, and it is a great joy to me when people start to feel more hopeful about the future.

On a personal note, my family relocated to Oxford in the fall of last year from Jackson, MS for my husband to be the Rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. We have busy toddler who keeps us on our toes! I enjoy exploring Oxford, eating good food, traveling and spending time with friends and family.
