Populations that I’m most excited to work with are families, couples, children, the LGBTQIA community, and people of color/culture.
My name is Savanah and you read that correctly, my name is spelled with only one N and my parents told me it was because we couldn’t afford both. I grew up in a family that had a lot of the right ingredients (like warmth and humor) but didn’t have some of the tools that would have made home life a whole lot easier for us all. So, I became a Marriage and Family Therapist because families are where we can experience a lot of pain and frustration, but also tremendous healing. On an individual level, I know the relief of breaking free from from behaviors and thoughts that keep us in the exhausting cycle of pain and confusion.

I have specialized training and life experience working with clients concerned with anxiety, major life transitions, LGBTQIA + individuals & couples, military & law enforcement families, online therapy, PTSD, and reproductive, postpartum, & parental mental health.
Feeling stressed out, lonely, overwhelmed? My approach is inclusive, body- & sex-positive, and affirming of all racial, age, religion, ability, relationship status, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, sex, gender, or military identifications. Counseling is a place to build authentic, trusting relationships where you can freely express yourself without fear of judgement. Sessions should be a place where you feel comfortable delving into the darker, more bothersome parts of life and know that you are able to openly express yourself.

If you are someone who has been struggling with lingering damage from a traumatic experience, I understand the longing you have to be free from this. I specialize in trauma that results from toxic relationships and situations, including involvement with cults, narcissistic individuals, unhealthy family dynamics, spiritual or religious abuse, intimate partner violence, or any system that operates with coercion or high-control/high-demands. These situations systematically aim to change who you are, subjugate you, and traumatize you into losing yourself.

These family situations are all stressful and can feel overwhelming to anyone. My passion is to help parents and teens through traumatic or stressful experiences.

Life often meets us with many unexpected challenges and transitions. This can lead you to feeling overwhelmed, confused, or stuck. As you navigate these growing emotions you can begin to question everything about yourself and your relationships. As Black women we often feel like we have to carry it all and do not have space to be our full selves or share our honest emotions. I want to support you with feeling more confident to express yourself so you can cultivate a life you are proud to live.

Let's play! I say this with pride. As a young child, I would play for hours with my dolls. I would act out sensitive material, happy times and frustration times, through my play. The passion for play should stay with us in a sense, as we develop through all developmental ages. Let's explore our sense of purpose, hope and peace. Young and (should I say it) old. I would say that working with young children and adolescence is my pure passion. The family support is essential and so my adults tag along as well. Let's explore how relations, life experiences and biology can aide in attaining, obtaining and maintaining whole health.

You deserve healing and happiness. You deserve a sense of well-being and meaning in your life. Have you spent too long in an endless cycle of feeling that you are not worthy? Everyday tasks become so overwhelming that even getting out of bed seems like climbing a mountain. Isolating yourself becomes easier because no one quite understands the sadness and anxiety you are feeling. You feel stuck and hopeless. Yet, part of you is ready for change.

What type of Pooler 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Pooler?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
