Uganda Harris 

Clinical Mental Health Counseling, Intern

Hello! I'm Uganda Harris, a Master's student in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Liberty University. My passion lies in helping teenagers navigate life's challenges and discover their unique paths to well-being. My journey in mental health began with a strong desire to make a positive impact on others, and I've gained valuable clinical experience working with diverse populations.

My goal is to create a safe, empathetic space where clients can freely express themselves, explore their feelings, and develop essential coping skills for their critical stage of life. I believe in a collaborative, client-centered approach, where we work together to address specific needs and goals, be it anxiety, depression, self-esteem, or other issues.

Outside of my studies and counseling work, I enjoy trying new recipes, playing strategy games, reading, and playing The Sims 4, which helps me stay balanced and inspired in my work. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and support your healing and personal growth journey.
