***NOT ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS UNTIL 2023*** Before you go any further and read anything else, I want you to give yourself a pat on the back for making it here! Whether you got here on your own or with someone’s help, consider it progress because you cared enough to try. You are probably here because you realized that it is time for things to change. As your therapist I am not here to fix it. The fear, the anxiety, the depression, the pain that you feel is not uncommon. My role is to help you heal. Together we can work on reaching your full potential and reconnecting you to the person you know yourself to be.

Since beginning my private practice in 1995, I have worked with adult individuals, couples and families who are seeking to find resolution to challenges in their lives, I strive to provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment where together we work on finding solutions to the issues that they are being confronted with. Even when we consider ourselves to be strong and independent people, we all reach a point in which life is just "too much".

Trauma and pain from past and present experiences can stop your life in its tracks, leaving you stuck in the same patterns, of thinking, feeling and behaving that eventually lead to building a life that is less than what you've hoped for. But with a little help, you can pause, learn tools, gain insights and figure out where and how to change your life's direction. You are not responsible for everything that has happened to you AND you are responsible for making meaning from the life you are living. How you do this depends on whom you believe yourself to be. Our work will help you to heal YOU.

A number of benefits are available from participating in psychotherapy. Therapists can provide support, problem-solving skills, and enhanced coping strategies for issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship troubles, unresolved childhood issues, grief, and stress management, and age issues. Many people also find that counselors can be a tremendous asset to managing personal growth, interpersonal relationships, family concerns, marriage issues, and the challenges of daily life. Therapists can provide a fresh perspective on a difficult problem or point you in the direction of a solution.

Approaching therapy can be really overwhelming. In reality, therapy with me is about stripping everything down and meeting you where you are. I became a therapist because I think everything begins with looking at life through your car window, and not holding any judgment on the feelings and experiences that come from that perspective. Many times we're led here because everything in our life feels too complicated- my role involves working by your side to learn how to untangle what feels too heavy and impossible. Through the therapeutic relationship, we form I want to help you get to a place where you feel whole.

Everyone deserves the opportunity to thrive. I work to help clients achieve psychological wellness and experience their lives with a sense of peace, satisfaction, and hope. I promote clients' ability to identify their goals, achieve them, and ultimately create the life they want. I use various cognitive behavioral strategies to promote strengths, while empowering clients to recognize, understand, and adaptively manage life's challenges. I know that life is challenging - full of highs and lows. I also know that within the context of supportive relationships and with sincere efforts, people can thrive.

I think of therapy as a way of freeing ourselves from the obstacles which prevent us from moving forward in our lives. Frequently these obstacles present themselves to us in the challenges such as problems at work, difficult relationships, adapting to life changes, or in the sudden impact of a traumatic event. Sometimes what stands in the way of our freedom and happiness lies within us, as negative thought patterns, conflicting or confusing emotions, and unexpressed feelings--all of which can result in depression, anxiety, chronic illness, low self esteem--burdens we often carry alone.

Finding someone who makes you feel understood is often challenging even in a therapeutic setting. I work collaboratively with clients, and emphasize an empathic client-therapist relationship. I have a very simple approach to therapy which is to understand your dreams, together set goals with you to achieve those dreams, and to teach you coping skills to manage the difficult challenges you are facing.

There is wisdom in acknowledging the present and accepting yourself as you are today without judgement but that is easier said than done. In a world filled with uncertainty and constant change learning to adjust might be harder than before. Therapy is about creating the space to process emotions, release burdens, learn to identify behavioral patterns, set goals, reframe your thoughts, regulate emotions, but ultimately learned to adapt to the inevitable change.

"You just don't get it". "Forget it!" And just like that, the conversation is over. Nothing gets resolved. The "topic" is avoided. How can communicating be so difficult? After all, you all speak the same language. Somehow what you say gets misunderstood, taken personally, and what you get back is defensiveness and criticism. There's not even an attempt at understanding you. There's no interest, no curiosity. You feel lonely, discouraged. "How can I get through to you?", you wonder. You're tired of arguing. The same old bickering every time. Enough is enough! You all can learn to get out of that pattern. You just need HELP!

If you’re struggling with anxiety, stress, a new life transition (motherhood, change in schools or jobs, etc), or struggling to cope with the weight of your problems on a daily basis, I can help you find a way forward and offer you the tools and techniques to tap into the inner strength that you already possess. I believe in approaching therapy from a warm, genuine, validating, and irreverent perspective and often use humor to help my clients get “unstuck” from unhelpful thinking patterns. My job is just to be your mirror to see what is already there, infinite wisdom.

What type of Atlanta 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 Atlanta?
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.
