As a child and adolescent therapist, I acknowledge the joys and the challenges we as parents often experience. By working with children and their parents as a family system, there is an increase in the overall efficacy of treatment. Often, many of our struggles as a family stem from our ability to fully understand each others' experiences and view points. Learning to communicate more effectively, regulate emotions, and be more mindful in our every day lives can drastically improve our personal and familial experiences.

Being born with a naturally intuitive nature presented many challenges; it felt overwhelming and burdensome most of the time, but something deep within knew that it was bigger than me. Yet, most days I felt different and out of place, a misfit… I was always highly sensitive to my environment and the pain that filled the space of the hearts of those around me. This unique gift of perception allowed me to feel what others were experiencing, namely their pain.

Hi! I believe every person deserves to live a life they find meaningful. To help my clients live more meaningful lives, I approach treatment alongside them and eclectically draw from various Cognitive Behavior theories along with Intersectional Feminism and Strengths-Based orientations. I strive to help my clients positively adjust their faulty or irrational ways by encouraging effective changes and/or radical acceptance of themselves and living situations. I feel empowering clients to be progressively mindful and actively involved in present life is key to them uncovering paths towards a present and future they find meaningful.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Dunwoody and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
