Hall's Story

Hello and welcome to BYBS!

I’m originally from Virginia, where I completed both my bachelor and master’s degree from The College of William & Mary. During undergrad, I majored in Film & Media while I was a Division 1 student athlete. I then decided to pursue a graduate degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Since graduating in May of 2022, I moved to the St. Petersburg area, and I’m so happy to call it home!

People are often surprised to hear that I originally pursued documentary filmmaking, but for me, filmmaking and counseling really aren’t so different. They both focus on telling people’s stories and exploring the human condition. They both ask existential questions: Who am I? What matters most? How do I heal? I truly enjoy this process of exploration, whether in film or the counseling room.

My clinical experience includes depression, anxiety, bereavement, grief, relationship issues, trauma- related disorders, life transitions, sports performance, and sexuality and gender issues. I celebrate people from all backgrounds, identities, and beliefs.

As a member myself, I’m passionate about working with the LGBTQIA+ community and proving gender affirming care to trans and non-binary adolescents and adults. I have found that practices like grounding, visualization, mindfulness, meditation, and ACT (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy) are most helpful in guiding individuals through the process of connecting with their true selves and thriving in their identity. 

I also enjoy working with athletes of all levels on performance anxiety and peak performance. My background as a former D1 college athlete gives me special insight into the mindset that is required for success. So whether you are a high school athlete aspiring to play in college, a collegiate athlete needing techniques for managing the stress of your sport, or someone who simply prefers a more goal-oriented approach, I can provide you with key strategies and direction for thriving under pressure. 


I know how hard it can be when you feel you are living your life for other people.  And I want you to know that there is hope - you just need the right person to provide you with the space and guidance you need to find your way. Therapy with me is collaborative and your voice matters most. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I believe in the power of meditation and eastern philosophy and enjoy sharing these holistic approaches with those interested.
