I have worked with adult individuals and with couples for 20+ years. I love what I do. I became certified in Imago Relationship Therapy in 2007 to best serve couples who may be in crisis or couples who want to improve the connection & communication they already have. As a part of my experience, I have done a lot of work with anger management, depression, anxiety/panic, communication skills, and trauma/abuse histories. My office is centrally located in Southside behind Bottega restaurant one block off Highland Avenue.

Traumatic events or issues with family, relationship and work can lead to depression, chronic anxiety, grief and PTSD. Resultantly, the quality of life deteriorates. Psychotherapy (counseling) enables you to explore your cognitive and emotional sides. It involves connecting your past wounds and present emotions. Psychodynamic therapy enables you to go beyond managing your present emotions and go to the source. I have explored and had many diversified experiences in Spirituality which is important in terms of your present and past experiences. My holistic orientation includes heed to nutrition in all matters related to the MIND-BODY-SPIRIT connection.

Though I have specific training in relationship issues (such as marriage, pre-marriage, same-sex unions, parenting, infidelity, and in-law issues), I also work a great deal with individuals. I offer specific forgiveness training that has proven extremely helpful in healing grievances and resentments; and am trained in the use of EMDR. When motivated, there is no limit to the potential for improved relationships, personal fulfillment, and peace. In work with couples, I see great improvement when there is deep motivation. And it is part of my job to foster, and nurture that motivation in each partner.

Sometimes we come to places in our lives when we don't know where to turn. At these times, we need someone to walk alongside us as we search. When I am invited to be that person, my role as your counselor is to provide a caring relationship of trust in which you can find healing and hope. I've heard it said, "It is in relationships that we become broken, and it is in relationships that we can find healing." Whether you are an individual, couple or family, I welcome the opportunity to walk alongside you - wherever you are in your journey.

Building a trusting and respectful relationship with my clients is the most important thing I can do.
Layers of grief, complicated family history, a genetic predisposition to mental illness, a traumatic experience, stressful changes -- or a combination of these things -- can be very difficult to manage or recover from by yourself. A seemingly unendurable situation or relationship can be overwhelming without support. If you've done all you know to do and you're still feeling stuck, I can help. I'd like to partner with you to find the clarity, wisdom, strength, comfort and supports you need to feel better about yourself and your relationships -- and to enjoy your life more.

If you are considering marrying someone with children from a previous relationship I can offer premarital counseling for both of you or just you to ensure that you have the greatest chance of a happy marriage and help you navigate potential pitfalls of blended families before they start.
Hey stepmoms and stepdads, I’m a counselor here for you. Regardless of what people wish were the case, or think “should” be the case, the reality is being a stepparent IS different and with it comes unique challenges and frustrations, and unexpected advantages too. I am here to help you walk through the unique emotions that stepparents often report experiencing: isolation, grief, feeling misunderstood, feeling like a stranger in their own home, and feeling invisible. We can navigate some tricky family situations together so that you have a greater sense of peace and belonging in your family and in your home.

Counselor, PhD, LPCSLPC, LMFT
My practice serves adults suffering from relationship difficulties, fears about how others or situations can be hurtful, and sadness about past experiences or losses.
I think of you as a team-member in counseling, and I like to learn from your narratives, while developing approaches to solve or manage your challenges. I was in practice full time from 1988-2013, and part time since 2013, when I began teaching in Counselor Education at the University of Montevallo. I see myself as a "critical thinker" in academia, and as a "clinical thinker" through counseling, with both those dimensions enhancing the other. I consider it my life's most meaningful privilege to walk with persons who, sometimes courageously, trust the process of personal discovery through counseling.

Most of us arrive at times when we can benefit from talking with a knowledgeable person who can listen with the objective of helping us to understand ourselves. My goal as a counselor is to help each person know and accept themselves. When I can provide that kind of counseling relationship , clients are much more likely to find their own strengths and wisdom. By listening with compassion and empathy, rather than judgment, I am more likely to help clients find greater harmony and peace in their relationships.

My other areas of specialty include anger management, codependency, self-esteem, communication, relationship issues , & issues specific to the LGBTQI population.
Seeking counseling is a very personal decision. Finding the right provider can be the most important step in the healing process. I believe I have helped so many clients because I use an array of tools and methods which I tailor to a client's unique goals. My approach is to work hard to understand a client's perspective and values. Sometimes this means helping the client explore and discover what that is for themselves. I lead AND follow - I may prompt, encourage, and confront, but I follow a client's pace (willingness and readiness) to delve into the issues.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Birmingham relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Birmingham.
