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.
