I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (LAPC) certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NCC). I enjoy assisting adolescents, college students, and adults who are struggling with issues related to self-esteem, anxiety, depression, eating disorders and eating concerns, body image, trauma, sexual assault survivors, grief, life transitions, and relationship issues. I provide client-centered therapy and believe that successful treatment begins with building a strong client-therapist relationship. From this secure base, I can support you in working through pain towards growth and change. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative process defined by trust, safety, warmth, empathy, and unconditional acceptance.
My practice includes engaging deeply in an effort to gain awareness of underlying sources of pain while identifying sources of personal strength. While treatment is unique to each client, I integrate interpersonal process therapy, CBT, DBT, spiritual sensitivity, and expressive arts when appropriate. I value a holistic perspective, meaning I view you as a complete person and promote emotional, physical, and spiritual balance.
My background consists of providing individual, family, and group therapy in a university counseling center, a nonprofit agency, and in schools, which has included providing treatment to children, adolescents, college students, and adults with a variety of presenting concerns. Additionally, I have experience working with children and families as a foster care and adoption case manager for the state of Georgia.
