Owner and Founder
Starting at a very young age, I developed a passion for helping others, which led to my interest in counseling and what has continued to motivate me over the past 7+ years.
I completed my B.A. in psychology, a master’s degree in Counseling, as well as a specialty degree in Play Therapy at the University of Mississippi. I have my LAC (Licensed Associate Counselor) and I am also a Nationally Certified Counselor.
After going through a major life change in 2018, I decided I needed a fresh start and moved from my hometown in Mississippi to Arizona with my dog, Rascal. Between the beautiful mountain views, breathtaking sunsets, and finally being able to live close to my niece and nephew, I quickly fell in love with my new place to call home.
Through my personal journey, experiencing growth and healing from working with an AMAZING life coach, and pursuing my career as a counselor, I started to develop a drive to offer something more… something that could differ from traditional talk therapy. This drive led me to reaching my goal of establishing my own business, Creative Expression, where I can offer a unique approach to counseling that differs from traditional talk therapy. My approach consists of utilizing creative art expression and play therapy techniques to help children, teens, and young adults with freely and naturally expressing themselves through creative outlets.
