Seeking understanding and caring for people is something I have done naturally since I was younger. Many of my clients also possess these natural abilities and deserve to know that they are worthy of the same care and understanding they provide to others. I care about my clients and I’m honored to help them process their past experiences, change negative thought patterns, uncover their natural strengths, find self-acceptance, and make choices they take pride in.
I believe that therapy provides a supportive atmosphere where an individual can feel comfortable examining their feelings, thoughts, beliefs, and experiences. With the guidance of a caring and attentive therapist, self-understanding can be achieved and valuable growth towards psychological and emotional wellbeing can begin. I am empathetic, genuine, and nonjudgmental. In our sessions together, we will come to a greater understanding of your inner struggles. I will assist you in developing tools that you can use on your journey towards personal growth. I aim to offer affordable therapy options so that mental health care can be accessible.
I incorporate a combination of treatment approaches including cognitive behavioral, existential, humanistic, narrative, psychodynamic, dialectical behavior therapy, and family systems therapy. I am experienced in working with both adolescents and adults through individual, group, couples, and family therapy. My areas of focus include depression, anxiety, self-esteem, self-defeating thought patterns, family and relationship issues, codependency, trauma, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
I hold a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and am licensed as an LPC and a nationally certified counselor. I am a member of the American Counseling Association and the Licensed Practicing Counselors Association of Georgia. I have provided both inpatient and outpatient therapy at Ridgeview Institute and have interned at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Child Protection Center. I have experience assisting in human and child safety awareness and abuse prevention programs, such as Stewards of Children and anti-trafficking campaign INnocence Atlanta. I am also a certified facilitator for Childhelp’s child abuse prevention program Speak Up Be Safe. Among many volunteer efforts I have served as a volunteer at the Million March Against Child Abuse to raise awareness of child abuse prevention.
Please feel free to contact me for a free, brief phone consultation. I look forward to speaking with you.
Notice to clients and prospective clients regarding Good Faith Estimates:
You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost. Health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.
You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the expected cost of any non-emergency items or services, including psychotherapy. You can ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.
If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.
For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, or how to dispute a bill, see your Estimate, or visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
