You or someone you love has a chronic illness or cancer that turned your world upside down and now nothing seems the same. You're tired of people saying this is your "new normal." During the day you're distracted and irritable, and you can't remember the last time you slept through the night. The anxiety and worry about what could happen is too loud. You feel like you're the one who has to console your friends, your body image is shot, and you're hiding your true feelings to protect those you love.

I can help ease the stress that's hanging over you like a dark cloud, so you can stop being a bystander and take part in your life. I'm the kind of therapist who can handle the stuff you can't say out loud so you can focus on feeling better.

Contact me for a free consultation if you're ready to let go of the fears that are keeping you stuck, diffuse unexpected anger, reduce stress, learn mindfulness and other self-care tools, and rediscover the qualities you miss in yourself. I can also provide video counseling for adults in Georgia who have difficulty getting to the office.

Adult Adoptee Process Group

The purpose of this group is to offer a safe, open space to explore and process thoughts and feelings related to being adopted. Members are welcome to bring search and reunion experiences to the group, but this is not specifically a search and reunion group. The group is open to individuals over the age of 18 who were adopted at birth. This group is currently on hold.
