As a double board certified Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, I provide clinical care in Georgia and will be providing tele-psychiatry in Texas. My mantra is MENTAL HEALTH which, for many, is achieved through forgiveness, healthy living, psychotherapy, spirituality, and pharmacotherapy as needed. I enjoy working with individuals and families whom are open to the often very emotional, slow and complicated therapeutic work required for change, recovery and healing. I recognize the healing power of Jesus, creativity, and healthy living; my therapeutic approach incorporates the interface of the mind, brain and spirit.

As a nurse for 30+ years I have learned that many physical illnesses are the result of emotional traumas, and unresolved grief. I believe everyone has the answers to their dilemmas deep within themselves. The reason that information is not readily available to our decision making is because life events has taught us how not to trust our inner truth. Our Logic, our Heart, and our Instincts are often in conflict with one another, which results in Confusion, Distrust, and Fear. Sometimes you needs someone just to listen and to help you learn how to listen to your self truths. This skill will help you grow in confidence and security.
