About Me

I opened my practice at Emerson Square in Parkersburg, West Virginia in February of 2012.  I had practiced the last ten years at the Counseling and Wellness Center also in Parkersburg. I enjoy being able to give back to the community I grew up in and where returned to raise my family.  

I have my Masters in Social Work from West Virginia University where I completed my field placement at the West Virginia University's School of Medicine, Department of Behavioral Medicine at Chestnut Ridge Hospital.

I also provide clinical supervision for social workers working toward their clinical social work license.
