Coping with life transitions, traumas, ADHD, developmental issues, behavioral problems, family issues, coming out and gender identity issues, anxiety and depression are the focus of my practice.
Welcome to my virtual practice! I have been a practicing psychologist for approximately 30 years. My practice focuses on working with women, older children, teens and their parents. You or your child may be feeling anxious, fearful, depressed, behaviorally out of control, or struggling with aspects of your identity. I can help you identify the sources of the distress and in collaboration with you put together a plan to build resilience and develop adaptive coping skills, and begin the healing to overcome the barriers to your well-being. At this time I provide teletherapy services to clients in GA & FL.

My practice focuses on psychotherapy, neuropsychological assessment, and educational advocacy. Due to COVID, I am offering tele-assessment for those in high risk groups or w/ family members who are. Issues include: learning problems, employment challenges, relationship struggles, life transitions, developmental disorders, medical illnesses, and stress of being a member of a diverse group (LGBT, ethnic minorities, etc.). I see children/adults who may be unconventional, anxious, depressed or do not fit comfortably within their environment. The label “disability” may be applied to them, but “differently abled” is more accurate.

Currently, not accepting new clients due to scheduling. - - Researching therapists is a big step, especially when you're used to handling things alone. Maybe it's due to recent events or something else, but things have changed. You're emotionally burned out. While you may be more comfortable supporting others, know that it's ok to get support for yourself. Therapy can be transformative when you're ready.

Anxiety is the most common struggle among the clients I work with. While anxiety is extremely uncomfortable, it can also bring us really valuable information. In therapy, I help people slow down and identify the components of the anxiety so we can decode that information and use it to move forward with a greater sense of calm.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
