I have worked several years in higher education in various roles, and have always appreciated and enjoyed working with students during this unique time in their lives. I believe my role as a counselor is to facilitate a safe, empathetic, and welcoming environment for students to explore their emotions and goals. I view counseling as a collaborative process in which the client is empowered to grow and increase their overall wellness. When working with a client, I work to take a holistic approach to facilitate and guide the process. I view my work with students as a privilege and strive to do my best to support them for success as one member of a student's support team. I have my limited license in counseling, working to earn full licensure within the next few years. I have earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication with an Interpersonal Communication concentration and American Sign Language Minor and a Master of Arts in Counseling - Clinical Mental Health from Central Michigan University. In my free time I enjoy reading, travel, and spending time with my family and friends.
