I have a BS degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and a M.Ed. in community counseling from Southeastern Louisiana University. I am a member of Chi Sigma Iota International Honorary Counseling Society. After graduating with my master’s degree in 1996, I spent eleven years working as a CPS worker for the State of Louisiana. This experience, while not technically counseling, has led me into the field of counseling I have been doing for the past several years.
