If you are living with chronic pain or a chronic illness , you’re probably frustrated by trying to explain the hard parts to other people in your life that just don’t get it, the ones who make you feel like “it’s all in your head”. I’m here to tell you that it’s not in your head…it’s real, and it can have a really big impact on your life. You might miss the way things were before your pain or illness; you might not even feel like the same person anymore. I know, because I've lived it. The sadness, loneliness, and constant worry that comes along with managing pain and illness is real, but it doesn’t have to be permanent.

Anxiety, depression, and chronic illness . The link between stress and physical health is undeniable. And then we stress about being stressed. When you're constantly putting out fires and attending to everyone else's needs, the idea of taking care of yourself can feel like a not-so-funny joke. This level of persistent stress often finds its way into our muscles, bones, and head (i.e. headaches), leaving us not only irritated but also in physical pain. And if you already have some kind of chronic illness , then you know how badly stress impacts you (hello, flare-ups).

I have a chronic illness , Type I Diabetes, which helps in my treatment of people with physical health issues.
I work with those who are seeking to express themselves and receive support in a calm and safe environment. Everyone experiences anxiety and it can become excessive, impacting our health, social or occupational functioning. I work with clients who are engaged in building a therapeutic relationship with healthy boundaries and are open to understanding their emotional or physical distress in order to improve self-care and interpersonal relationships. We’ll explore insight into the root of unhelpful belief systems, identify ways to support reframing and emotion regulation and work to improve interpersonal communication.

When managing a chronic illness , emotional eating or dealing with anxiety and depression, a ton of issues and questions can come up that are totally valid! Surprised to hear that? Don't be! I had bariatric surgery in 2005 and my first chronic illness diagnosis in 2014.
If you're ready to find your inner b@d@ss - I can help via online therapy - daytime, evenings & weekends! The stress of all the everyday things - work, family, appointments, etc - can be overwhelming. You get a moment to breathe & you feel guilty, wondering if you deserve to take time for yourself. I find that clients who want to learn to manage their anxiety or depression - whether after bariatric surgery, while managing chronic illnesses, or embracing their identity - feel unheard and overwhelmed because the support they need isn't there. It can be hard to feel understood when you feel alone in your journey.

Do you live with emotional trauma, physical trauma, chronic illness or chronic pain? Are you tired of feeling like your life is out of control?
 I understand how difficult it can be to live with emotional trauma, physical trauma, chronic illness and chronic pain. Life is not happening the way that you planned. You may be frozen in physical and emotional pain. The pain is not gone even when there is no evidence that it should still be there and you worry how you will show up in your own life if the pain lasts forever. Maybe you can't stop thinking about the thing that happened, no matter how hard you try.

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.
