Breaking The Stigma Of Counseling
I graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a BA in Psychology and met Trent pretty soon after that when we were both psych techs at CMC-Randolph, both on the brink of going back to school to further our education-Trent for his Masters, and me for Nursing School.
Trent and I were friends for awhile, dated for awhile, moved to Colorado with some close friends for awhile, got engaged and married while living in Colorado, and eventually moved back to NC to be closer to friends and family).
I went to nursing school with the intent of becoming a psych nurse, but found Mother Baby nursing in my last semester and never looked back-I was a Mother Baby Nurse for 17 years-2 in Denver, Colorado and the remaining years in Charlotte.
Trent started L & B Counseling in 2009 when our kids were 3 and 4 years old. On my days off from the hospital, I helped with billing and back office organizational work, so when the need emerged for a full time position for these things at L &B in 2019, it was an easy transition (and a nice break from working holidays and weekends and super long hours).
I practice yoga pretty regularly to keep my type A brain at ease. I love to travel with friends and family, mostly to warm and/or tropical locations as well as out west to Colorado and Montana, and I love weekend getaways with my sisters when we can squeeze them in.
