Helping others is a desire I have had deeply in my heart. It is the reason why I entered into psychotherapy. I noticed that people need someone they can trust and talk to without judgment. There was a real need for someone to understand and help them with their anxieties, life issues, feelings of hopelessness and fear. I am passionate to work with diverse cultures and populations from every walk of life.
As a therapist, I am an advocate of the LGBTQIA community. I stay educated about best practices for working with LGBTQIA clients. It is my thought that you know who you are and there’s nothing that needs to change about your identity. I strive to create an affirming space for every community - helping individuals, and young people to identify and achieve their personal goals by coping with the issues that are causing them distress, anxiety, and stress.
I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor since 2013. I have worked in Behavioral Health with adult individuals and school age children for the past five years in the SE Georgia region and have recently launched my private practice in 2020. My primary specialization is Trauma Therapy; however, I incorporate diverse styles and techniques in a more eclectic approach based on client need. These techniques include Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, (EMDR),
and Play Therapy.
We come to therapy to work together to find solutions for change, understanding and empathy. During your initial session you can expect me to get to know you and provide a healthy environment for feedback that you can take with you in your everyday life. We will explore your thoughts, feelings and reactions which arise in order to work in your present moment. Whether you are looking for support during life's challenges or you want change in life's directions, I am here for you. I take great pride in the progress and success of my clients, and look forward to establishing a collaborative relationship with you.
