“Don’t only practice your art, but force your way into its secrets, for it and knowledge can raise men to the Divine” ~ Ludwig van Beethoven

I chose this quote because I have always enjoyed learning and I am still learning during my time at Parsons Counseling. I was employed at EKU for 27 years in which I earned 4 degrees, the last being a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am fairly new to the profession although I feel like I have been listening to people talk about what is on their minds and hearts my entire life. I have been trained in play therapy, theraplay, grief and loss, and trauma.  In my free time, I enjoy volunteering in the community, spending time with my family, and going to concerts, and reading.
