I was born and raised in north-central West Virginia. I moved to Huntington in 2003 where I attended Marshall University. I completed my internship at Ohio University Counseling and Psychological Services in 2012, which engendered a strong interest in working with a college population. Thereafter, I returned to the Huntington area, gaining experience in a variety of settings, including community mental health, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, and private practice.

I was fortunate to begin work with West Virginia University’s Carruth Center for Psychological and Psychiatric Services (CCPPS) in 2017. I have been excited to return to a college counseling center to pursue the deeply rewarding work of helping students and training new counseling and psychological professionals. 


When I’m not at the office, I enjoy heading home to Fairmont, WV to spend time with my wife,  daughter, and son. My hobbies and interests include photography, gaming, technology, and science-fiction.
