My foundational approach is Acceptance & Commitment Therapy ( ACT ) which emphasizes building a mindful, meaningful, resilient life that can withstand life's storms & revel in its beauties.
Hi! I'm glad you found your way here. Reaching out can be terribly difficult. Often filled with anxiety, fear, and self-doubt. I've been there.

Whether you're facing a point of challenge, a period of crisis, or a chronic issue, I welcome the opportunity to bring my experience and training alongside your experience, values, and goals. Together, we can make something decent of this strange, messy, and perhaps even beautiful world.

I utilize a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction to help my clients increase awareness and gain a deeper insight into the sources of their anxiety and stress.
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.

My areas of clinical focus are around men's issues and with members of the LGBTQ community. I'm committed to providing a safe and affirming environment where you can process your feelings, no matter how difficult or uncomfortable.

I'm an active therapist and work collaboratively to help you increase self-awareness and identify a healthier path. Additionally, I draw on different theoretical approaches to adapt my work to your needs, but work primarily from a relational psychodynamic perspective.

I work from a humanistic therapeutic approach and utilize person-centered psychotherapy and mindfulness and acceptance and commit therapy to meet your needs in their fullness.
Seeking counseling is a vulnerable and rewarding processing. It is not exclusionary and can be a journey taken by anyone at any life stage. Therapy may be for you if you are looking to create a better relationship with friends, family, peers, or yourself. It is a unique space where I hope to meet you right where you are. I am passionate about working with people who are curious about their own experience in life. Therapy doesn't mean you are broken or that something is wrong. It just means that you are insightful enough to recognize that your mental health is worth your energy and time.

I am client centered, with training in psychodynamic, solutions focused, CBT, DBT, and acceptance and commitment therapy.
Let's face it: life is messy. We are all broken people living in a broken world and doing the best that we can. And sometimes our best just doesn't seem to be good enough. We can find ourselves disillusioned and heartbroken and yet we don't know how we wound up here. We long for more out of this life and yet we don't know how to get there. Whether you are grieving a loss, struggling to make a decision, or simply find yourself stuck in a rut, counseling can help you understand not just the origin of your problems but also assist you in developing practical coping skills and solutions.

Making changes can be hard and finding a therapist can be overwhelming. I started working in this field over fifteen years ago to help people like you find a space that is welcoming and provides the safety needed to explore whatever it is you are facing. I believe that everyone has their own unique story, and that healing takes place in the rapport built between client and therapist. Therapy can help you become unstuck. It can help reveal patterns that are no longer useful and can help build resiliency. Seeking wellbeing is a courageous act and I do not take that lightly. I would be honored to explore how we might work together.

Having a coach is not a sign of weakness or the acceptance of failure, it's a decision to move forward with a new perspective for a balanced and improved life.
I am a certified life coach consultant whose passion and service is to help others improve their lives and reach their goals. I specialize in assisting youth in their self-discovery. I assist them in creating a blueprint on how to fit, understand, and be part of society. Youth experience traumatic emotions and can be deeply troubled and misguided. Parents become confuse and inpatient about their teens behaviors and decision making. My coaching techniques aim to help youths be positive, organize and responsible, grow confidence, become people-person, improve their lifestyle, and follow their dreams.

As a LMSW, I pride myself in using evidence-based treatments such as CBT, ACT , CPT, and DBT.
Often times, adults work very hard and carry many roles. This can lead to fatigue, increased stress, burn out, or anxiety especially during seasons of transition. I passionately work to assist individuals in moving towards living, what they identify as a more enriched and fulfilled life. I use mindfulness practices, trauma processing, and mood regulation to help adults reduce anxiety and depressive symptoms, increase coping skills for stress management, improve overall confidence and self-esteem, and increase desired behaviors. These changes impact their ability to experience more peace and overall satisfaction .

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment Therapy have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Atlanta will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
