I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and young adults dealing with social skill deficits, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, anger management, ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, gender identity, stress, and life transitions.
Does your child or teen (or you!) ever feel overwhelmed, anxious, lonely, or discouraged? Does your family struggle to navigate the challenges of school, friends, family, or stress? As a parent, it's hard to see your child or teen experience these types of challenges. You want to help them gain confidence and happiness but you are not sure how to best help them. If your family is currently facing this type of challenge, I would love to help you find the best way to help your loved ones.

While I specialize in the treatment of relationship issues and mood disorders such as depression and anxiety, I have extensive experience supporting clients who struggle with issues which include, but are not limited to, trauma, assertiveness, career transition, parenting, bereavement, employment, ADHD, Autism , and eating disorders.
Thank you for taking a moment to visit my website. I am passionate about supporting my clients on their journey toward personal and professional growth. My primary objective as a clinician is to help them raise their awareness regarding thoughts and behaviors that impede their growth and then to join with them in creating clear pathways toward change. While nothing is more important to me than establishing a warm relationship within a nurturing environment where clients feel comfortable telling the truth and taking risks, I place equal importance on compassionately challenging them to take as much ownership as possible.

What type of Alpharetta 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 Alpharetta?
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.
