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

Sometimes, life can be difficult despite our best efforts to parent and protect our kids. This can result in our children experiencing trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and more. In counseling, I can help children and teens find their inner strengths, develop healthy coping skills and feel more connected to themselves and others in a positive way. I specialize in using play and expressive therapy which has an amazing curative value as it allows for people to express their feelings, practice new behaviors and create healing in a developmentally appropriate way.

What type of Dawsonville 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 Dawsonville?
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.
