Announcement icon To address the mental health concerns associated with COVID, I am offering in-person service or tele-therapy. SLIDING scale is available.
Most people come to therapy knowing that they have something they would like to address. It is my job to help you create some concrete, achievable goals, so that we can work together to help you get where you want to go. To help address your concerns, I use an integrative, wholistic approach which draws on the many disciplines in which I have training. Whether you enter therapy wanting to deal with anxiety, past trauma, or addiction, or you just want to function better in daily life, together we can work to meet your goals. I see clients both in- person and virtually in Alabama but work only virtually in Tennessee (TN lic# 2504).
I have spent my career training in research based techniques. It is important to me that I have knowledge to help that is grounded in evidence. Whether you are coming in with relationship problems, or you just need better coping skills, I have learned strategies and techniques that have been widely studied and shown to be effective.
If you’re unsure what will help, please don’t hesitate to reach out. If I can’t help, I would be glad to direct you to resources to meet your needs. If you are in need of SLIDING SCALE SERVICES, please don’t hesitate to inquire. I am happy to accommodate based on need. Please visit my website for more information.
