I believe that we are all unique people with gifts and talents yet to be realized, and that some of us are having trouble seeing it within ourselves and need a little help. I am here to help. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with a deep desire to help individuals overcome their mental and emotional problems using a Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) approach . Your thoughts are the drivers of who you are and what you can become and do. Negative thoughts can sabotage us in many areas - your well being, your relationships, your career, your past, your present and your future.

My practice is fairly evenly divided across individuals, couples and corporations. I address issues ranging from anxiety, depression, marital/relationship, parenting/family concerns to life transitions and executive/organizational development. I received my doctorate in 1986 and went on to serve as president of the Georgia Psychological Association from 1999-2000. I rely on a blend of cognitive behavioral and family systems therapy to help clients develop a practical, common sense path to change. The central premise is that in order to change your life, you must first understand how it used to work and why it doesn't anymore.

Waitlist for new clients
Often times when individuals seek therapy, they are in some of the hardest seasons of life. I strive to offer an environment and experience filled with acceptance and empathy to help you work through those challenges. I enjoy working collaboratively with clients to help process big feelings and hardships they may be experiencing. I especially enjoy working with children and adolescents who are struggling with life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, ADHD, family conflict, and other difficulties that are keeping them from living their best life.

Feeling like life has gotten beyond your abilities to handle? Perhaps you're stressed out from work, or the loss of a loved one. Perhaps there are struggles in your marriage, or you're wondering what's going on with your kids. Perhaps you are engaged and simply wanting to set yourself and your partner up for a successful marriage. Maybe your child has been diagnosed with a mental health concern and now you are concerned with how to help them. Or perhaps you or a loved one is struggling with self-harm or thoughts of suicide. Life may be difficult, but it can still be one worth living.

I view every person as a unique individual with specific goals, perspectives, barriers, and background. Relationships (missing and broken), demands and expectations that lead to letdowns and depression, trauma, undesired repetitive behaviors, refusal to accept things as they are and shame ("something is wrong with me") are just a few of the common themes I help individuals and families with. I have experience with families, individuals and adolescent groups. My hope is to partner with people with a strong willingness to participate who want restoration.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who enjoys working with young people. Like adults, a young person can experience interpersonal, emotional and behavioral difficulties usually as a result of stress. I use creative therapeutic interventions to help you better express feelings and resolve problems. I can offer special insight into learning difficulties and school issues. I understand that kids can have struggles that aren't easy to work through alone. Sometimes it seems easier just to hide from your problems, but facing difficult issues with a safe person can have a much healthier outcome.

Taking that first step and asking for help can feel scary. Therefore, my approach to therapy begins by developing a trusting, reciprocal relationship with my clients. I believe trust is fostered through honesty, support, connection, acceptance, and understanding. The formation of this relationship is the agent of positive change. My goal is to work collaboratively with my clients to remove uncomfortable symptoms, alleviate emotional pain, increase self awareness, and promote personal growth and positive change. Ultimately, this will improve the quality of the lives of my clients and the quality of their relationships with others.

Asking for help is not always the easiest thing to do. I seek to create a place of safety and trust for you to stretch, grow, change, and open yourself up for healing to begin. I engage the counseling process from a non-judgmental and compassionate approach, allowing clients to feel heard and understood as they gain insight and develop coping strategies. I aim to view my clients holistically using therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Narrative and Art Therapy, and Mindfulness practices.
