Unregulated emotions are often the driving force behind most people's problems. Most people need to be heard and to feel that their points of view are being validated. My approach to therapy is to assist individuals to gain an in-depth understanding of the pitfalls that deter their growth as they navigate through life.

I believe we live in a world that can be cruel and unkind to people that need help. I have desired to be a safe place for people to reach out to when they need it. I was born and raised in Central Florida, close to Tampa. In 2007, my husband and I relocated to Georgia. I am a wife and mother of two boys who keep me busy and help me remember the small things that bring me joy. My hobbies include cooking, photography, hiking, exercising, and gardening. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Georgia Gwinnett College. After this, I went on to receive my Masters of Arts in Mental Health Counseling.

Welcome to the first and most courageous step of therapy - looking for help and support. People are already amazing but sometimes life experiences, circumstances, illness and relationships can impose clouded judgment, maladaptive behavior, poor self esteem and obstacles from achieving what we truly desire and deserve. I am the type of therapist that is willing to be both vulnerable and open, speaking directly and honestly. My extensive work with adolescents and adults has taught me the importance of being genuine and down-to-earth, and thus, I work best with individuals who prefer a straightforward approach.

When we are depressed and anxious, doing life seems impossible. The day-to-day demands can weigh us down even more when we are tripped up by our past, don't have the energy for the present, or are too frozen by anxiety to move towards the future. You may long for the day when you can walk intentionally through life instead of stumbling through the fog of just surviving to get to tomorrow. You may long for connection and understanding instead of feeling isolated and forgotten.

Online Therapists

Is online therapy as effective as in-person?

Numerous studies suggest that online therapy can be as effective as in-person therapy. However, further research is needed to determine if online therapy provides the same benefits across all client populations. Individuals with severe mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia or bipolar disorder, or those who may benefit from in-person check-ins, like those with eating disorders, may not experience the same level of benefit from online therapy. Nonetheless, the success of online therapy, much like in-person therapy, often hinges on the quality of the therapeutic relationship between the therapist and the client rather than the specific modality of therapy used.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of therapy conducted online?

One of the main advantages of online therapy is its convenience for both clients and therapists. It also allows clients who require specialized therapy to access a wider range of professionals than they could with only in-person sessions. Additionally, online therapy may be a more affordable option in some cases and often offers the same insurance benefits as in-person therapy. However, online therapy may not be suitable for everyone, especially those who value face-to-face interaction with a therapist. Therapists may find it more challenging to assess clients accurately in an online setting due to reduced nonverbal cues on camera. There is also the increased risk that disruptions caused by external factors, such as technology malfunctions, can hinder the therapy session. For these reasons, many therapists offer a "hybrid" therapeutic approach, alternating between seeing clients in-person and online.

Is online therapy suitable for children and adolescents?

Just like with adults, the accessibility and convenience of online therapy can greatly benefit children and adolescents. In fact, children and adolescents may be more accustomed to navigating online platforms than older adults, making online sessions feel more natural for them. Teens might also be interested in using additional online tools, such as therapist-recommended apps, as an adjunct to online therapy sessions. Apps for developing CBT skills, practicing mindfulness exercises, or tracking thoughts and moods can be helpful for teens receiving therapy. However, it's important to note that not all therapeutic modalities are well-suited to online therapy, especially those used with younger children. For example, play therapy, which helps younger children express their emotions, often requires in-person sessions to be fully effective.

Can I receive prescriptions and medication management with online therapy?

The ability for psychiatrists to prescribe medications through online therapy varies based on the medication and the states where the medical professional and client are located. While many prescribing regulations were relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic, some states still enforce rules, especially concerning controlled substances, which may mandate an in-person visit before prescribing. Generally, however, medical professionals can prescribe non-controlled substances through online therapy sessions just as they do during in-person sessions.
