I was born and raised in Southwest Florida. After graduating High School at 16 years of age, I joined the military at 17. I completed 9 years in the Armed Forces and decided to pursue my dream of being a Mental Health Counselor. I completed my bachelor’s degree in Psychology at Florida Gulf Coast University after getting married and graduated 7 months pregnant with my son Jayden. I then completed my master’s degree in Professional Counseling after giving birth to my second and last child, Jy’L Renee. I completed my second master’s in mental health wellness and prevention and Doctorate in Pyschology, specializing in Christian Psychology. I have worked in the mental Health field for over 15 years, I am a certified Forensic Interviewer, a Master Trainer, a licensed and ordained Minister, certified in Entrepreneurial business management and also serve as a Trauma Educator with Lawnwood Regional Trauma Center. Of all my training and education, life has been my greatest teacher. Your latter days will be greater than your former!
