Hey there! I am the Intake Director for Connect Counseling, and I have been with Connect for about 4 years now. My inspiration for taking on this role is Brené Brown, who taught me that the first step in seeking help is to be vulnerable, and being vulnerable takes a lot of strength! I love what I do and find it very rewarding each day. Growing up in a small town, I have always cared deeply for people. Through studying Sociology at APSU and experience as a domestic violence advocate, I have gained excellent skill in taking care of people by connecting them to needed resources. All while having empathy, a non-judgmental space, and a listening ear.
My system is created with intent to give full transparency. From answering insurance questions to matching you with the right fit based on your needs and personality, I strive to get you with the therapist that is most beneficial for you or your child. I want this process to be as stress-free and comfortable as possible. I am a Mom, wife, and advocate. I understand trauma and how the brain functions (and tricks us). I also understand every day stress in this place we call life. I will take every step with you to feel supported, heard, and validated.
I truly believe we have the best team and therapists in the world, everyone deserves this level of self-care, and it's my job to help get you there. Whether it's an easy fit, or a 1,000 piece puzzle, I will be there every step of the way so you can feel confident that you are in good hands. I can't wait to support you through this process!
