Hello and Welcome!
I am a licensed therapist here in the South and the creator of Courageous and Mindful. I created this site to help folks become the person they are striving to be through self-discovery. Learn the benefits of Mindfulness by connecting with your body while on your personal growth and development journey.
I came into the mental health field in 2015. Since then, I have worked with a variety of folks in a variety of settings. Ranging from inpatient settings to outpatient settings to intensive outpatient settings. I have worked with folks that struggled with substances to those that struggled with psychosis, and everything else in between.
I get how stressful life can be, and sometimes we are dealt a set of cards that we don’t know what to do with.
I spent many years of my own life holding myself back from the things that I truly wanted to do because I was letting life happen to me instead of for me. I was passively living my life because I didn’t know how to take action and make life happen for me, even with all of my education.
Eventually, I decided to do my own work and learn why I have been holding myself back. I used a combination of self-discovery techniques, mindfulness, and personal growth and development. As a result, I discovered ways to prioritize my own mental well-being, understand what has been holding me back, and have created ways to challenge myself to reach my goals.

Three key components to a life worth living
Knowing yourself is a journey you take throughout your lifetime. It brings you face-to-face with who you are.
Modern life is fast-paced and demanding. Mindfulness helps ease our stress and anxiety and teaches us ways to be calmer and less reactive.
Personal Growth & Development
Life is a list of choices, and the more we know and understand ourselves, the better choices and growth opportunities can be seized.
Who I Am
When I am not busy with Courageous and Mindful, I work with folks in my community who are struggling with mental health. And I also work with BetterHelp.com as a therapist.
People in my life have described me as pretty calm, laid back, and easy to talk to, which is a good thing given my field. I agree with all of those things and add that I possess a soul that will not settle. I’m always interested in learning and experiencing new things. Even things that used to scare me.
I experienced an Existential Crisis a few years back that propelled me onto a path of discovery. I am still on that path and have learned a lot about myself while also learning more. I want to share with you something that I learned about myself and having a soul that will not settle. The thought of giving up or never starting terrifies me more than failure will ever scare me.
So, here I am. Starting something new with no guarantee of success, and that’s okay because failure doesn’t scare me like it used to.
