I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapy Professional dedicated to helping adults. My goal is to assist you in taking steps on your healing journey.

My style as a therapist is integrative in nature with a focus on authentic, direct, and honest communication. I frequently use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques and skills training because I am a Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapy Professional. While my work is rooted in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I also utilize Integrative Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Strength-Based Therapy approaches. I approach counseling in a nonjudgmental manner and meet my clients where they are. I strive to provide a safe space for individuals to grow. I support adults in working to achieve their individualized goals throughout the counseling process. I offer TeleMental Health/Remote Counseling Services for adults located in Georgia.
