I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and worked for 6 years in public education. I received my masters in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from Capella University and then worked for 2 and half years at a CORE agency in Georgia. My specializations include abuse/neglect, PTSD, abandonment, depression, anxiety, early childhood trauma, RAD, and FAD/FASD.
I have served as the on call therapist for Children's Cultural Connection, a nationwide orphan hosting program, and have served on non-profit panels at Kennesaw State University in Kennesaw, GA. I am the former leader of One.27, the orphan care program at Cross Pointe Church in Duluth, GA. I founded the non-profit Walking With Orphans in 2010 which serves orphans throughout Eastern Europe and Russia.
I am a mental health therapist who resides and works in Bucharest, Romania. Prior to moving to Romania I worked in a CORE agency in Georgia as an intake assessor and mental health therapist. I currently work with children who have been placed in state run orphanages with the international missions organization, Heart to Heart International.
