My Approach to Helping

As a pre-licensed intern, my goal is to empower you to make positive changes. I work under the supervision of Dr. Angela Waggoner as I complete full licensing requirements in Virginia. I earned a Master’s degree from Liberty University in 2008, and I earned a Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Southampton. I am currently in a graduate degree program to update coursework and meet licensing requirements. I am certified in mindfulness-based stress reduction and certified clinical trauma professional. I have a great deal of experience working with children, adolescents, and families in crisis. I utilize trauma-informed care as I teach mindfulness techniques for emotional regulation to help manage anxiety, depression, anger, and other difficulties.
