I enjoy the work I do with individuals and couples, as we explore their journey. I see counseling as coming along side the client and exploring their "right answers" as they trudge their road to happy destiny. I am thrilled as I see clients thrive and change as they explore their opportunities. I have 40 plus years of experience in the treatment of adolescents and adults. I have worked in both residential treatment and community based programs. Currently working in two private practice counseling groups, Alpha Hope Counseling (Cumming and Dawsonville GA) and Etowah Counseling (Cartersville GA).

There are times in our lives when we get stuck; in relationships, with parenting, or feelings of anxiety, fear, depression, anger, low self esteem, stress or loss and these thoughts and feelings get in the way of our happiness and our ability to function optimally. Old coping skills, which once worked for us, we still use because they are familiar and comfortable but are no longer helpful and often become part of the problem. I consider my ability to connect with you, to "be real", to be trustworthy, mindfully present and to provide a safe space by being nonjudgmental & empathetic the foundation for your positive change.

Life happens, take that first step towards healing. Whatever the issue, needs or goals, I can help you figure out what YOU want and why. Mental health is often overlooked and when left unchecked it may wreak havoc on the physical body. It is so important to look at the whole person. Studies have shown being outside reduces feelings of depression and anxiety. Due to this finding, I also offer eco-therapy. You tell me what you are looking for and we can pick from a couple of options and figure out what works best for you: 1. Video (HIPAA compliant platform) sessions 2. Outdoor setting

*I am not able to accept new patients at this time.* Are you at a point where you or a loved one has lost hope? With over 27 years of experience helping children, adolescents, adults, marriages, and families, I've seen many find hope that was previously absent by using a short-term, targeted, and effective approach to counseling. Each therapist has unique strengths. Mine is working through tough problems other therapists don't prefer to treat by seeing clients in their homes rather than in an office. Most people are able to see a significant change within 6 months. Counseling should not last forever and neither should your struggles

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.

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.
