A licensed psychologist, I received both my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology and my M.S. in Professional Counseling from Georgia State University. My approach is integrative, drawing from Adlerian Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Interpersonal Therapy to meet the needs of a diverse clientele. When faced with difficult situations, we often feel discouraged. I believe that a safe, supportive environment is key to growth, and I offer plenty of encouragement. I help clients gain perspective through empathic exploration. We’re all doing the best we can in life, but sometimes we get in our own way. As much as I’m comfortable with deep emotions, I also believe in the importance of bringing laughter and humor into the room!
I received my Master of Family Therapy from The Mercer University School of Medicine. It is an integrative Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) program uniquely a part of a medical school paralleled by only two other MFT programs in the United States. Through my rigorous training, I was offered extensive clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families experiencing trauma, grief, and relational challenges. I treasure the opportunity to walk through life’s greatest challenges as an honor and profound privilege. When clients work with me, they feel safe to explore their past pain and current struggles in an environment where they experience unlimited positive regard and support. Sometimes hard situations, like grief, trauma, and relational difficulties are similar to walking through a dark tunnel. The next step is often confusing and the unknowns keep one stumbling in the dark, doubtful that the light will ever be reached. I cherish the opportunity to enter into the places that feel broken beyond repair and help clients experience restoration and healing and ultimately thrive.
