Change can seem daunting, but always leads to wisdom, increased awareness and self-improvement. Best of all, change can be accomplished with dignity and poise; life's speed bumps don't always have to turn into a train wreck. Learning to trust the process of growth with courage, leads to self-actualization. I bring over 30 years of experience to your counseling needs and am licensed in AL, SC, GA and OR (and FL for telehealth). Focus areas include navigating through life changes, mood disorders, PTSD, anxiety, stress management, family problems, identity shifts, child/play therapy, parenting and social media issues.

Feeling emotionally uncomfortable may signal that change is presenting you with an opportunity. But maybe you're not sure what to do about it. Using cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness are what will help us identify old patterns of thinking and acting which may be causing problems for you in the present. My counseling work focuses on you as a whole person and respects the dimensions of mind, body and spirit. This is a safe, confidential place to explore your feelings and expand your options.

Are you a parent frustrated by your child's hyperactivity, battling for control, anger, defiance, or school behavior problems? Has your family experienced transitions like divorce, loss of a loved one, or moving to a new area? As parents, we want our children to be happy, healthy, well-rounded, joyful, and worry-free. We want them to be at peace with themselves and with others, and confident in themselves and their own abilities and aptitudes. Sadly we can't always protect them from broken relationships, hard choices, big challenges and tough losses. Sometimes we need trusted counsel to help navigate storms.

UPDATE as of 10/01/22... I currently am NOT able to take on new clients. I appreciate your interest and apologize for any convenience this may create. I will be taking on new MFT associates to supervise late October, so please reach out if interested. We all struggle in life sometimes and need help! In this day and age it can be hard to find the space to discuss the challenges of life with someone in a safe and genuine way. I enjoy meeting people where they are at in life, without judgement, and helping them sort out their next steps whether they be for improvement, maintenance, or understanding.

What type of Fairhope mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Fairhope?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
