When human beings experience life-altering stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who have been through severe life stressors. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia. Most of my 20+ year career has been spent working with adults, children, adolescents and their families in a community-based, inpatient, and school-based counseling program. I work form a collaborative, strengths-based approach; assisting and supporting clients to be the author of their own lives and to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they and know themselves as complete, whole and safe. I work with clients experiencing anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, depression, relationship challenges, self-esteem, and varied mental health diagnoses.

My theoretical approach is based on the belief that clients are in charge of their counseling experience. They will learn bounds of aspects of their life that they can control and what they cannot. I purposefully incorporates multicultural concepts into each case, because I feel culture greatly influences how we interact with those around us and can help to define our strengths. I Iook forward to clients finding their strengths so they can be used as a roadmap to overcome barriers.

My goal as a counselor is to provide a safe environment where we can explore your primary interests, develop goals and determines strengths and assets as you move toward your aspirations. I focused on using treatment methods that have been researched including: Cognitive-Behavioral, Rational-Emotive Behavioral, Solution-Focused, and Person-Centered to collaboratively work on goals defined by my clients. Areas of treatment that I specialize in are: anxiety, depression, disruptive behaviors, depression, relationship challenges, self-esteem, and varied mental health diagnoses.
