Life can often be difficult and emotions can feel overwhelming. Sometimes it feels like the rug has been pulled out from underneath us. Maybe an important relationship has ended, you have a loved one struggling with substance use or you would like to learn to navigate boundaries in your relationships with family, friends or a partner . Whatever it is that has lead you here, I'm glad you are reaching out. I hope to provide a space to you that honors your story and facilitates personal growth. I believe that each of us deserve to find healing and that includes you. Asking for help can be one of the bravest things we do.

"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.

Feelings of depression, fear, anxiety, confusion, anger, grief, trauma, and other struggles beset us all at times.

With empathy and compassion I will also ask challenging questions to explore ideas, new ways of thinking and understanding, and guide intuitive discovery for meaningful change.

Common reasons for coming to counseling I see include anxiety, depression, couples working through conflict and looking for improved communication, creating a healthy self-relationship, improving self-confidence, pre-marriage/pre-engagement counseling, trauma and post-traumatic stress, college/life transitions, and spiritual/faith challenges and traumas.
People often come to counseling feeling stressed, overwhelmed, worried, depressed, and sometimes unsure of where to turn next. 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.

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.

I will also empower you with the skills to live life and have the relationship with your partner that you want.
Thanks for checking out my profile! The past few years have made all of us think more about who and what is important to us and how we want to live our lives. Perhaps you are facing a major life transition, struggling to feel connected in your relationship or need help figuring out how to be a “grown up” and deal with an increasingly tough world. You may be overwhelmed by difficult thoughts, feelings or situations. You’ve tried everything you, your family or friends think will make things better, but it’s just not working. You are stuck and need help with getting unstuck.

I am available for individual, couples or family counseling sessions Monday-Friday.
Are you experiencing stress or anxiety in your everyday life? Are you going through a major life change or transition, difficult season or experiencing struggle in your relationships? Do you at times question if your life has purpose and meaning, or you do you feel as if you are just “surviving” day to day? If you resonate with any feelings associated with questions like these you are not alone. I believe it is important to consider all aspects of a client’s life including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.

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.
