I am a psychodynamic, attachment-based counselor meaning that our sessions will mostly be unstructured and conversational.
I specialize in affirming therapy for members of the queer community. In our cis-, hetero-, and mono- centric culture, many of us are shamed for who we love, how we structure our relationships, and our sexual expression and interests, including from "LGBTQ+ friendly" therapists who often interrogate & judge our identities. We deserve better. We deserve therapy that affirms instead of shames us. Frequent topics of conversation among people I work with include shame, trauma, secrets, identity, self-worth, CNM, kink/BDSM, contemplating/recovering from breakup/divorce, family estrangement, self-sabotage, boundaries, attachment, & grief.

I work with individuals on both a short-term and long-term basis, and draw from a variety of theories and approaches including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, existential and attachment-based therapies.
I specialize in working with adults who have trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, grief, stress, and relationship issues. Often when we experience difficult life events, we hold our upsetting memories vividly in our thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and even in our bodies. We revisit the painful past again and again, stuck in negativity and unable to simply talk our way out of the distress. I help my clients to access and process, at a deeper level, these experiences, using effective, evidence-based modalities that work. We clear out the painful past to make room for the joyful, fulfilled, self-actualized life they yearn for and deserve.

Are you struggling to make sense of how painful past experiences may be impacting your present day life? Do your relationships feel challenging as opposed to joyful, connected, and life-giving? It is my passion to work with others as they process past experiences, relational patterns, and pursue holistic healing in all areas of their lives. Whatever challenges, grief, or suffering you’re facing, you are invited to come exactly as you are.

I specialize in treating trauma-related issues, sexual dysfunctions, depression & anxiety, trust issues, and problem behaviors. I also provide gender & sexual identity affirming care. I deeply enjoy helping individuals feel a greater sense of self-efficacy, confidence, and clarity in their lives.

Using a holistic and somatic Attachment-based approach, I help people who are feeling anxious and overwhelmed experience relief. Are you so worried about how you’re living your life that you’re not living it? Motivated to be your true self, but are not sure who that is or how to get there? I work with sensitive systems that are seeking balance, relational healing, and a sense of identity. Together, we can slow down to begin moving through the anxiety and start placing yourself within your own story. Therapy with me is a gentle and collaborative process that nurtures unseen parts in order to release your creative energy.

Are you ready to integrate loving kindness and compassion into the relationship you have with yourself and others? This may seem an impossible healing for those who have endured relational betrayal, death, loss, hurt or trauma. However, shifting focus towards meaning, resilience, and possibility can liberate you from your past and present suffering. What does this mean for you and your loved ones? It means here is an invitation to sit with a non-judgmental human being while you recover, connect, and heal in new ways. It means you may shed old roles, affirm new strengths, and learn others with vulnerability and without guard.

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. Along the way, I've experienced how essential it is to talk with someone eager to listen deeply, respond compassionately, and support journeys of healing in creative and thoughtful ways. 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.

Feel like you can’t catch a break - or even a breath - between work or school, family and friends, responsibilities and the constant over stimulation of society? Does your head even feel connected to your body anymore? Would you recognize yourself in a crowd of people, or have you lost sight of who you are? Life can feel overwhelming & complicated but successfully combating challenges doesn't have to be. Do you want your life, relationships & challenges to be simplified? I begin therapy with the destination in mind & desire to help you learn tools that help you now as well as down the road!

The relationship with the self supports all other relationships in our lives. From this understanding, my work with clients centers around exploring and strengthening the foundational relationship with the self, to include: identity formation and development, building healthy relationships with others from a place of self-worth, life stage transitions, spiritual concerns, and grief and loss. I seek to support my clients in bringing their lives into greater alignment with their personal values, so that they may feel more at home within themselves and more empowered to express themselves authentically.

You’ve gone to therapy before. You've read every self help book out there. It helped, a bit. You learned a few things but it wasn’t everything you wanted. Your life kinda stayed the same, plodding along the same path. Some details may have changed, the scenery might be a little different, but your life still has the same feel of something missing.

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.
