I attended Auburn University; I received a bachelor's degree in psychology from Mississippi State University, and later earned my Master of Counseling Psychology degree from Mississippi College. I completed internships at Charter Behavioral Health Systems and St. Dominic Behavioral Health in Jackson, MS.

Experienced in both hospital and outpatient settings, I have worked with a wide range of psychiatric and mental health problems.

I have been a therapist in a partial hospitalization program; I was a research associate at the University of Mississippi Psychiatry Department, taught psychology courses at the college level; and have worked as a marketer and assessment coordinator for an alcohol and drug treatment center. My main focus for the last twenty years has been as an individual practitioner in the field of eating disorders.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a National Board Certified Counselor, a member of the National Eating Disorders Association, and a past affiliate of both the American Psychological Association and the International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals.

Having recovered from an eating disorder myself, I now help others find freedom from anorexia, bulimia, and related conditions. I also treat clients struggling with self-injury, adjustment problems, anxiety/depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and a history of sexual or physical abuse. These conditions often co-occur with eating disorders.

I enjoy reading, running, playing the piano, and going on adventures with my husband Adrien.

I treat males and females, adults and children over the age of 9.
