I truly feel so honored and privileged to care for students at Bryan College through Counseling Services. I believe working through one's story is one of the bravest things an individual can do. The journey of healing and restoration is worthy work and every time I meet with a client for the first time, I am floored by the strength they are displaying by facing their story. In my seven years at Bryan, I have been deeply changed by the clients I have sat across from.
