Hi, there! Thanks for visiting my page. I believe that individuals know themselves best, but sometimes we may encounter times when it is hard for us to stay attuned to our authentic needs and wants. That’s where I come in - to help facilitate a process of change for my clients, by walking alongside them. I believe that everyone’s mental health is fluid and on a spectrum. My goal is to encourage and support optimal mental health functioning and provide clients with an exploratory space to delve deeper into self-understanding, acceptance, and love. My office is in Avondale Estates, right next to downtown Decatur.
I specialize in providing individual therapy to young adults, adults, and older adults. I am skilled in working with clients to address issues related to anxiety and anxiety spectrum disorders, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, stress management, poor self-esteem and interpersonal struggles.
My approach is eclectic and integrative and introduces techniques from multiple theoretical orientations including but not limited to Psychodynamic Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Emotional Freedom Techniques, Mindfulness Practices, Trauma-Informed Therapy, and Strength-based Interventions.
