Announcement icon I am offering both telehealth video and phone conferencing for all clients through my secure, HIPAA compliant platform Simple Practice.
I specialize in romantic and sexual concerns including infidelity, intimacy, desire, and couples therapy for individuals or partners with a focus on rebuilding connection, communication, and conflict skills. My treatment approach is based in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). This includes challenging self-talk and investigating patterns to help you better understand yourself and help to achieve your goals. I focus on educating the client, utilizing your strengths and providing techniques to overcome conflicts. My goal is not to diagnose you but to improve your life and your relationships to manage future concerns independently.
I graduated summa cum laude from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and with highest honors from Oakland with MA in Counseling. I am an AASECT Certified Sex Therapist with training in Emotion Focused Therapy and Gottman Method for couples. I have a background in clinical research which assists me in teaching evidence-based techniques to my clients.
As you embark on your journey of self-improvement I would like to offer my services to you as a guide. I am the owner of Affinity Counseling Group, LLC with practice locations in downtown Birmingham. I have tele-availability Monday - Thursday. Please contact me today if you would like more information or to make an appointment *Now Accepting Virtual Clients*
