About

Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified Counselor, Approved Clinical Supervisor, and Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor with over 20 years of experience. While my therapy style is strongly influenced by cognitive-behavioral and acceptance and commitment therapy, I tailor counseling to fit patient's unique needs. Faith sensitive counseling is available for those wanting to incorporate religious beliefs into therapy. I primarily treat individual adults and older teens. I enjoy using the PREPARE/ENRICH model for premarital counseling, which is typically completed in about 8 sessions.
My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, faith issues, grief, trauma recovery, PTSD, sexual abuse, career counseling and testing, educational counseling (i.e., test anxiety, college decision making), premarital counseling, pregnancy loss/infertility, and professional licensing supervision.
I have experience as a Counselor/Internship Coordinator at Augusta State University's Counseling Center and taught college courses in psychology and student success. With over 16 years of supervision experience and certifications as an Approved Clinical Supervisor and Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor, I enjoy providing clinical supervision for those seeking counselor licensing in Georgia.
