True counseling creates a relationship between the client and the counselor; a relationship of mutual respect and trust. With the right counselor this relationship can be life-changing. My approach is unique. My office space is cozy and inviting, just like your very own living room. Also, I believe in being down to earth and straightforward with my clients, and in working with them to bring about true healing.
I am a Licensed Counselor and Certified in the field of Addictions. My primary focus is to assist with persons who feel that they are stuck in a realm they would rather not be in due to depression, anxiety or addiction problems. I enjoy working with couples that would like to improve their relationship and families that may have concerns with their children's progress. I have had 20 years of experience as a counselor.. My experience has shown that in a confidential setting, a person will grow from within when provided a trusting, empathetic and objective witness.
Mom guilt. Exhaustion. You may be constantly checking the baby monitor (or running to her room) to make sure she is breathing even though you know she is going to be screeching in exactly 17 minutes for her next feeding. You know that he is going to resent you and you blame yourself for not feeling that instant connection when he was born. Instead of proudly wearing that super mom cape, you feel strangled by the requirements to make sure all your kiddos are fed and clean, move the laundry to the dryer before it grows mold, & checking Google to verify that she is hitting all of her developmental milestones. You feel like a failure.
Let's face it - life is challenging. Taking the first step to reach out and ask for help can be difficult. When we struggle with mental health, relational issues and/or substance use/misuse, it is easy to feel inadequate and wonder if things will ever get better. Although you may have found yourself in patterns that you do not like, you have the power to change them. You have strengths to help you create a life inspired by what's most important to you and deal with life’s challenges in a more effective way.
Being human is complex and brings a plethora of emotions your way. There are highs, lows, twists, and turns. At times the emotion we experience is overwhelming and the natural urge is to resist the feeling, to push it all away. The struggle to resist painful emotions, thoughts, memories, etc. is exhausting. It is through acceptance that a person can begin healing, coping, and growing into their best self. I have experience working with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Borderline Personality Disorder, etc., allowing me to help others learn new ways of addressing unwanted emotions, thoughts, and behaviors.

I believe that we all have a superhero hidden deep within us, and sometimes it takes something out of the ordinary to awaken that part of ourselves. That something could be anything from the loss of a loved one or job to an overwhelming amount of stress, and anything in between, and it is by working through such events that we unveil the hero. Life often leaves us feeling stuck - uncertain of how or where to move forward. I enjoy helping people dig deep until they find that hidden superhero, and then working to help them learn to harness its power in order to help themselves get unstuck.

**Not currently taking new referrals**. Accepting Life on Life's terms can be difficult at times. Its ok and even healthy to reach out for support.... You get to choose who you trust and with whom you feel most comfortable reaching out for that support. ---Counseling and problem solving with a clinician in an office setting can provide a 'sounding board' & objective feedback in a mutually respectful and professional way. --- I look forward with my customers to an opportunity to grow and learn through their experiences, assisting at times to extract meaning from their suffering.

My ideal client exists in you. Each one of us has struggles that we deal with daily. It is imperative we tend to our mental health as well as our physical health.

Congratulations on taking the first step of your journey! Finding the right therapist is not easy. I hope to give you enough information to determine whether or not we would be a good fit. I provide services in both English and Spanish. I have extensive experience providing individual, family, and group therapy to children, adolescents and adults of diverse racial/ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. I also provide consultation services for parents with children with Individual Education Plan (IEP) and collaborate with your child's school to maximize their educational potential.
I specialize in working with the LGBTQIA+ community because I am part of that community. You should never have to educate, defend or explain your identity to your therapist and you should never have to worry about having that identity invalidated. You are more than your gender and orientation but those identities need to be affirmed. My focus as your therapist is to give you the tools you need to have just one day where you are not overwhelmed with anxiety, fear, shame- whatever it is that feels like it's consuming you. One day where you can wake up in the morning and live. Then, I want to help you make that one day every day.
A benevolent open-minded counselor with 25 years of expertise in the field of counseling visualizes the needs of the ideal client: to actively listen, to assist client to identify their needs, and to help them find means of reaching long-term goals, changing issues into solutions and finally helping them to become responsible individuals.
In life you are presented with two choices, “evolve or repeat.” Transformation and change is not always the easiest path. I believe it’s worth discovering, and I want to help you. I allow my creativity and kindness to be a part of my therapeutic practice and provide a non-judgmental and safe environment. I hope to empower clients and bring out their strengths during the therapeutic process!

Not currently accepting new clients but waiting list available. If you need some help with mood disorders, anxiety, life stress, managing anger, or recovering from a trauma, I'm here to help. If you just feel you're a total mess or need help coping with dysfunctional friends or family members, I work with that, too.

I practice online and treat clients in Georgia, South Carolina, and Florida.
Desperate to transform your life? Sick of living with depression, severe anxiety, intrusive thoughts, and always feeling horrible. Do you despair that life won't ever get better or that things can't change for you? Do you feel you don't deserve to be happy or loved or to have a good life? Do you feel like you're on auto-pilot half the time, going through the motions of life but not feeling joy or fulfillment? You know that something is deeply wrong and things need to change, but you don't know what and you don't know how to start. You also know you are done with feeling this way, and you're ready to do what it takes to feel better.
