Watching your child struggle through a life change can be extremely difficult, particular as you experience those changes yourself.
I primarily work with children and adolescents. I focus on helping them through developmental and lifestyle transitions including changing schools, family changes, parent divorce, and loss. When given the opportunity, I integrate Biblical principles into counseling to help the client make solid connections between life events, emotions, and relationships with others.

In addition to adults, I provide adolescents & children services drawing upon the experience I gained during the 3 years I worked with children and adolescents from Greene County Georgia's school district.
After receiving invaluable warmth & empathy during my own experience of therapy I felt obliged to give back to others the same compassion. To assist clients struggling with issues from depression & anxiety to PTSD & Bipolar Disorder I combine an eclectic and collaborative approach rooted in attachment theory with the goal of shifting a client’s experience from survival to one of well-being. I use my training in EMDR therapy & certification as a TC-Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator to help clients process the difficult emotions that follow surviving traumatic experiences.
