I have experience with a wide variety of issues, including mental health, relationships, trauma, parenting, substance use, and grief.
I realize people come to counseling for what appears to be a million different reasons, but ultimately people come to counseling because they are in pain. There are times when a loved one is struggling, and a family, couple, or child requires extra support. We all face painful changes in life such as loss or illness, divorce, conflict, addiction, self-worth, and identity issues. There are times when these changes also bring up issues from the past and counseling can help. I want to help you cope well and live according to your values and aspirations. Counseling is about improving your quality of life and instilling hope.

I offer shame-free trauma and addiction treatment in Athens, GA. Nearly 75% of individuals struggling with substance misuse have a history of trauma. The risk of developing a substance use disorder is directly linked to a person's exposure to adversities such as childhood abuse, toxic stress, and dysfunctional relationships. I'm proud to specialize in helping those seeking recovery find the deep healing required for success. In the face of an invisible epidemic, trauma and substance misuse, you need an ally who sees you, knows your worth, and can help you move towards the life you deserve.

Would you like to free yourself of unhelpful patterns that lead to stress, conflict, or withdrawal from life? Are you feeling challenged in managing fear, sadness or anger? Having the courage to admit things aren’t going well is the first step to changing them. My goal is to help people maximize their potential for rich, full and meaningful lives. My approach to therapy supports clients in being less identified with habitual thought patterns and feelings that keep them stuck in behaviors that no longer work. In my practice, I help people learn to be less reactive and more compassionate towards themselves and others.
