Counseling is a healthy commitment and shows bravery. It is crucial to find the right fit for yourself, one who can best relate to your issues. Working for Peachford, Ridgeview, and Emory Hospitals, has allowed me to focus on trauma, persons on the spectrum, resistent anxiety-depression, ADHD, grief. My goal is to serve as an advocate for those desiring healing, proper medical care and learning to use their voice. Specializing in teens, college students, and adults who suffer from intrusive thoughts, self-harming behaviors, suicidal ideation, depression, anxiety, divorce, parental alienation, and narcissist abuse.
I hold several degrees: Fine Art with extra training in Cognitive Behavior and Expressive Art Form. For your healing journey, I focus on Expressive Art, DBT, and EMDR. I have Master's of Science wit training in Trauma, Forensic Evaluations for Court, and Parental Alienation. I am a member of the AFCC Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
I enjoy a challenge and believe, “There is a solution to all problems.” Everyone in life has a story to be told. We all want to be respected, loved and understood. I embrace Erikson’s life stages and Rogers's Person-Centered therapeutic approach. I strive to help build a supportive and authentic relationship with all my clients. I offer group therapy too.

I come from a Carl Rogers background. I mix his beliefs that the client works alongside their therapist. I also believe that a combination of CBT and DBT can be excellent ways of instilling new behaviors and communicating more effectively. Your voice matters and needs to be heard. Recently, 2024, authored a book, "A Heart's Betrayal."
