Going to counseling is a huge and challenging step. Next stage is finding the right fit for yourself and one who can best address your issues Therapistcb@gmail.com. As a previous staff member at Peachford and Emory Hospitals, my training focuses on trauma, difficult transitions, anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss, and depression. My goal is to serve those in need, who desire healing. I specialize in adolescents and college age (along with their families and young adults) to uncover core reasons why individuals are in a pattern of self-harming behavior, suicidal ideation, high anxiety, and who are facing divorce, alienation, separation.
I also have an art degree with skilled training in drawing, painting, puppet therapy, sand tray and EMDR. During the healing journey, I believe in focusing on several complementary modalities, such as Art Expression, DBT, Experiential, EFT and EMDR to assist with hurtfutl memories. Currently, studying Forensic Evaluations for Court and Parential Alienation.
I enjoy a challenge and believe, “There is a solution to all problems.” Everyone in life has a story to be told. Family tracing is vital. I embrace all of Erikson’s life stages and enjoy being a life coach — to provide supportive options, while forming an authentic, and therapeutic relationship. I have served Pet Therapy since 1996 and embrace comfort pets.
