I help individuals, adults and children , and their families create paths of coping, change, and healthier communication using practical and researched counseling methods.
Overwhelmed? Anxious? Are you in a rut? Having the same arguments, tensions, repetitive fearful or sad thoughts, or unhealthy patterned behavior with family, spouse, your children , or loved ones? Do you often wonder "how did I/we get here?" Do you worry about how your children cope with life challenges? Depression, loneliness, anxiety, and grief happens to us all - even little ones. You can learn living and coping skills to enjoy life again and relationships with the ones you love.

I enjoy working with a variety of individuals from all walks of life, including children , adolescents and their families.
As a mom of twins, I know how challenging parenting can be. Social media influences, self harm behaviors, impulse control, anger management, bullying and low self worth are just a few of the issues adolescents and their families must navigate. Better relationships within the family unit are possible. Seeing your child smile again is possible. Laughing with your children again is possible. Your adolescent making good choices again is possible. It just requires, change. Start Over, Start Now. Let today be your Day 1.

I see adults, children and teens.
My professional counseling is from a faith-based perspective and I strive to assist clients as they choose the pathways that will bring hope and healing. Central to my counseling philosophy is the belief that each person longs to "be known". Through the counseling relation, the therapist and client work together to explore the client's inner world. The goal to "be known" is reached through sharing one's story and through increased self awareness . The counseling relationship is a healing relationship. This healing relationship very often brings about lasting change in the client's life, bringing meaning, purpose, and direction.

Does your child or teen seem anxious or worried? They may be struggling with perfectionism, with what others think about them, or worried about their future and how well they are doing in school. Are they tense, losing sleep, or have they lost their spark? Do they seem moody or irritable, stay in their room too much, and think they can’t do anything right? Your child or teen may be struggling to see the positives in themselves and struggling to manage the emotions that they are feeling. As a parent, you may be at a loss of what to do for your child , having tried everything you can think of.

My recent practice has specialized in working with children and families, adolescents and young adults--in particular, working with clients who have not had previous success in therapy. I have also considerable experience in working with adults struggling with life issues, and men coping with relationship problems. My approach is practical, focusing on the problem that brought the client to therapy, then building on success in addressing this issue to develop strategies for future success. I use evidence-based practices and strongly believe that the client is the expert in their situation.

As your therapist, I have over two decades of experience working with children , adolescents, teens, families, and couples with the following: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, addictions, parenting issues, divorce issues, domestic violence, anger management attention deficit disorder, ADHD, post-traumatic stress disorder, physical and sexual abuse, oppositional defiant disorder, adjustment disorder, parenting skills development, learning disabilities, educational/school problems and relational issues and divorce.
I work to create a safe, confidential, genuine, and non-judgmental setting, which is essential for establishing a healthy therapeutic relationship. When clients can experience a sense of unconditional positive regard from their therapist, they will be more apt to be vested in the therapeutic process. Part of my job as a therapist is to actively listen to what you are saying and not saying, during each session. Through active listening, I can help you explore the underlying issues of your experience as well as identify your personal strengths. I utilize a myriad of therapeutic approaches in meeting clients' individual therapeutic goals, needs, and styles. Such as, 'talk' therapy, humanistic, cognitive-behavioral therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy, play therapy, and sand tray therapy, etc. I promote increased self-awareness and actualization, which develops emotional, physical, and spiritual balance. This works towards reducing many sources of conflict in one's life.

I can help by listening to your concerns, partnering with you and/or your child to explore the underlying causes of stress, and helping you learn new ways of viewing it and dealing with it.
Feeling tired, stressed, overwhelmed? Of course you are! We live in a crazy fast-paced world. Are you feeling the effects of daily pressures? How about your child ? Children feel it too! Children don't always know how to express their stress, so they act out which stresses you even more! Whether you are seeking help for yourself or are concerned about a child or adolescent, talking things through and finding new perspectives can make a huge difference in everyday life.

What type of Alabama 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 Alabama?
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.
