Marriage and Family Therapy Intern
From the time I was still a child, I grew up always knowing without a doubt that I wanted to work with children. I was not exactly sure where this desire would take me, career wise, but ended up being introduced to psychology in late high school. From there I dove into developmental psychology, really wanting to learn more about how children typically develop mentally and emotionally and help those who may not be on the normal path for this. After I graduated I began working in a community mental health organization that worked with DCS families and children doing skills training work and quickly discovered for myself that a lot of families had a deeper need than simply addressing coping skills and I wanted to be able to help them with this. Now I am in the process of receiving my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy. My main goal and desire is to help couples and families build a healthy foundation by addressing past hurts, current problems, and gaining the necessary insights to function well with one another.
