Many people today face complex problems related to employment, money, tragedy, mental and physical health, relationships, habits and addictions. The inability to cope with these added pressure and stresses of life sometimes interferes with our desire to be happy and live a satisfying life. While some may be able to make the needed adjustments on their own, others may need professional guidance to get their life back on track.

I have been a therapist since 1991 and have had the opportunity to work in varied settings with a diverse population. I approach therapy with a non-judgmental, caring attitude, believing wholeness and healing occurs if individuals, couples and families can acknowledge their strengths as well as learn from their weaknesses. I am a professional who explores how a person operates and navigates within their own family system, with hopes that they find clues to their own particular functioning and modify their behaviors in ways that ultimately lead to health.

I am the founder of Kind Recovery and offer shame-free addiction treatment in Athens, GA. I know nearly 75% of individuals struggling with substance misuse have a history of trauma. I know the risk of developing a substance use disorder is directly linked to a person's exposure to adversities such as childhood abuse, toxic stress, and dysfunctional relationships. I'm proud to specialize in helping those seeking recovery find the deep healing required for success. In the face of an invisible epidemic, trauma and substance misuse, you need an ally who sees you, knows your worth, and can help you move towards the life you deserve.

I work individuals and couples to help build better relationships and coping strategies for times of conflict and change. Having worked for several years with substance abuse groups along with anger management and family violence intervention, I have helped people of all ages to move beyond the negative self talk and low self esteem in order to be successful and thriving in their personal lives and relationships with others. I also offer EMDR to address trauma. Because I believe there is not a single way to deal with life, I like to meet my clients where they are in their own lives and help them to accomplish their personal goals.

Family demands, work, relationships, financial stress, lack of fulfillment, or simply, not knowing what prevents you from enjoying the best of who you are can be overwhelming. You may feel stressed, afraid, confused, hopeless, wishing that "something or someone" could just take over and show you the way. Life is an opportunity to grow, sometimes in the worst of circumstances. You do not have to sacrifice happiness and live as a prisoner of anxiety, depression, abuse/trauma, rejection, or believing that "You do not deserve better". Seeking help to discover your capacities is, in itself, an amazing act of courage.
