I am a mental health therapist in training. I am on my way to finishing my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. I am also a creative nonfiction writer and a poet with a bachelor’s degree in English writing. I am an advocate for mental health. I am deeply passionate about making a difference in the stigma attached to mental health through knowledge, awareness, and creative writing. I want to share my own story, as well as the stories of others who have persevered through great adversity. I am also a wife to an amazing husband, a mother of two beautiful babies, and a Christian who wants to show love, kindness, and acceptance to everyone I meet.
