I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia. I earned my Master of Education from the University of West Georgia and an Educational Specialist Degree in counseling from Argosy University, Sarasota, Florida. I have over 21 years experience in an educational setting and eight years in private practice.
My counseling style is genuine and practical. My empathic stance focuses on the client's needs and strengths. I incorporate a myriad of evidence-based therapeutic practices: Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I am a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional (CCATP), Certified Anger Management Specialist (CAMS), Certified Mindfulness-Informed Professional (CMIP), Certified Dialectical Behavior Therapist (C-DBT), and I am trained in Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping).
I will provide a safe and non-judgmental space that assist clients in identifying their strengths, stressors, and goals. I will collaborate with you to support, challenge, and encourage you to grow, all while learning more about yourself. Our sessions will be informative, engaging, and individualized. You will be encouraged to grow emotionally, mentally & spiritually. You will laugh, or even cry, all while learning new skills and techniques that will equip you on your journey of living the life you desire.
