I work most frequently on relationships managing trauma and childhood neglect. I also love working with clients who do not have negative past experiences, but simply want to improve the relationships they have. I provide a warm environment for exploring areas of concern, and I am committed to hearing the spoken and the unspoken, as well as helping you make meaningful connections in your life. As a therapist who is Christian , I also enjoy making spiritual connections and giving encouragement to one's faith journey. I am also comfortable maintaining a safe secular space for you to share your struggles openly and honestly.

"Why does anybody tell a story? It does indeed have something to do with faith. Faith that the universe has meaning, that our little human lives are not irrelevant, that what we choose or say or do matters, matters cosmically." L'Engle Join me in telling your story and we'll narrate your current stressors into a more meaningful life. I offer calm and focus as I engage clients and address their issues. Historically, I provided seven years of bereavement counseling. During that time I comprehended the nature of grief present in life's transitions in adjusting our expectations of ourselves and relationships.

My goal is to create a relaxed, comfortable, “come as you are” space that is free of judgment to talk through whatever obstacles are impacting your life. My approach focuses on relationships and is client-centered in order to empower you to take steps towards the healing and growth that you desire. I trust you to be the expert in your life as we walk together towards achieving your goals. In my work, I use an eclectic blend of techniques from IFS, CBT, DBT, and mindfulness to best meet your needs.

​Transform your inner critic into your biggest ally. The people I help in therapy are used to handling whatever life throws at them. Other people have high expectations of them that they can usually meet. But, at some point, they begin to feel that perfectionism and the pace of life has worn them out. Something has changed and the ways they’ve coped in the past aren’t as effective as before. If you're thinking about starting therapy, you may be feeling the same way. You’re meeting everyone’s expectations of you and getting it all done. But you’re exhausted by the fear that your best will never be enough.

Life can often feel messy and chaotic. My passion is to help bring order out of chaos to facilitate growth and peace. Many of my clients present with concerns related to anxiety, depression, relationship issues, stressful life transitions and circumstances, perinatal mental health concerns, or they report feeling a little “off” and are seeking help to feel more like themselves again. I work best with clients who are engaged and motivated to see changes in their lives, and I have a great love for coming alongside people to help them move towards becoming the best version of themselves.

Adopting or fostering comes with many challenges. Families go into it excited about the child they will love and care for, and it is common to experience many challenges in loving a child from a hard place. Children placed for adoption or in foster care have experienced a great deal of loss. This leaves them dealing with pain on a deep level. Families often feel guilty or like they haven't been good parents if their child experiences attachment difficulties. But the truth is that it would be weird if they didn't based on their life experiences. These issues are complex and multi-layered, often involving the entire family system.

As a nurse for 33 years I have learned that many physical illnesses are the result of emotional traumas, and unresolved grief. I believe everyone has the answers to their dilemmas, deep within themselves. The reason our internal information is not readily available for decision making, is due to life events, which has taught us not to trust our inner truth. Our Logic, our Heart, and our Instincts are often in conflict with one another, which results in Confusion, Distrust, and Fear. Sometimes we need someone to just listen and to help you learn how to listen to our self truths. By learning this skill you will grow in confidence an

What type of Watkinsville 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 Watkinsville?
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.
