I offer shame-free trauma and addiction treatment in Athens, GA. Nearly 75% of individuals struggling with substance misuse have a history of trauma. The risk of developing a substance use disorder is directly linked to a person's exposure to adversities such as childhood abuse, toxic stress, and dysfunctional relationships. I'm proud to specialize in helping those seeking recovery find the deep healing required for success. In the face of an invisible epidemic, trauma and substance misuse, you need an ally who sees you, knows your worth, and can help you move towards the life you deserve.

I work individuals and couples to help build better relationships and coping strategies for times of conflict and change. Having worked for several years with substance abuse groups along with anger management and family violence intervention, I have helped people of all ages to move beyond the negative self talk and low self esteem in order to be successful and thriving in their personal lives and relationships with others. I also offer EMDR to address trauma. Because I believe there is not a single way to deal with life, I like to meet my clients where they are in their own lives and help them to accomplish their personal goals.

From there, I incorporate approaches such as EMDR , DBT, IFS, and Brainspotting to help you in learning skills and resources to effectively take action and create the life you envision.
My ideal client is anyone who is contemplating a change in their lives, big or small. This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships. I believe that everyone is capable of change and, many times, already possess everything they need - they just don't know how to access it. I work with clients to develop an individualized change plan to turn big decisions into easier action steps. I view my role in this process as a "change consultant and coach" to help people live their dreams.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LCSW

I have an eclectic approach heavily influenced by advanced training in attachment, Traumatic Stress Studies and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing ( EMDR ).
Everyone experiences wounds in life, be it loss, illness, abuse, a difficult relationship, neglect, or any other overwhelming issue. Sometimes even experiences that "should" bring joy like graduating, starting a new job, marriage, or having children can render us feeling like we are in crisis - or stuck. I work with clients to help them get unstuck from feelings of anxiety, depression, and emotional reactivity. When we can identify the patterns that keep us in pain, we can begin to develop new ways to cope and manage the stress of our lives.

I have primarily worked with adolescents and adults coping with Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, and family members impacted by a loved ones addiction. In life we may have experiences where we did not cope effectively and those memories just stick with us. Along with those memories are negative ideas about the self and uncomfortable emotions. Through the use of EMDR and trauma focused approaches, this "old stuff" can be resolved to create a healing lasting change.

*I OFFER EMDR INTENSIVES + WEEKLY SESSIONS* I wonder if you have sought feelings of fulfillment and security through pursuing external goals. If this hasn’t worked, maybe you strive to stay up and out of your pain with distraction or numbing - feeling unsafe in your body or the present moment. Perhaps you work to stay away from the parts of yourself you have learned are ‘bad’ and avoid feelings and memories that are scary and painful. Maybe you strive to feel ok by doing what you’ve learned you’re supposed to do, but rarely what you truly desire. This is not your failure! You’ve done what you needed to survive.

EMDR Therapists
EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist's finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the client is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation.

If you're looking for EMDR therapy in Athens or for an Athens EMDR therapist these professionals provide EMDR therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing and EMDR treatment. They include EMDR therapists, EMDR psychologists, EMDR psychotherapists, and EMDR counselors.
